Prepare for your Council Tax bill

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

Local Authorities up and down the country are preparing domestic properties’ new bills for the upcoming financial year.

Your new 2023-2024 Council Tax Bill should arrive with you on or before 30 April. We've noted some key actions for you to consider to help you prepare for your new bill. To avoid falling into arrears this year we suggest you are proactive with the points below.

How to set up payments for your new council tax bill

One way to avoid arrears this year is by setting up a direct debit, this will tell your bank to automatically pay your local authority a set amount, every month until the bill is paid off. (typically you can choose 10 or 12 months).

Help available to you

If you're worried about falling into debt you should contact your local council as you may be entitled to a discount depending on your circumstances. You local council may also enable you to split your monthly payments across 12 months, instead of the typical 10 months. This will lessen your monthly charge.

If you’re the only person aged 18 or over living in a property, you may be entitled to a single adult discount. This discount entitles you to 25% off your council tax bill. Click here to apply for a Council Tax discount.

Take action

If you do not receive your new bill before this period, you should contact your local council as soon as possible. Delaying contacting the council will not reduce your bill, it will just reduce the length of time that you have to arrange payment.
