When we send you your Council Tax bill it is based on your circumstances as we know at the time. If any of your circumstances change, it may affect the amount you pay.
Your bill could change if:
- you move house or change address (you can notify us online)
- the number of adults living in your property changes ( you can check discounts and notify us online)
- your income and your entitlement to Benefit changes (replaced by the Council Tax Reduction Scheme)
- The property becomes empty (please see property exemptions)
If any of the circumstances which may affect your bill change, by law you must tell us as soon as possible. If you delay in letting us know you may have difficulty paying any increased amount you owe.
By letting us know straight away we will be able to send you the correct bill.
