Council tax is charged for all properties which are classed as being for domestic use. Business properties will be charged National Non-Domestic Rates (NNDR or business rates). More Information on business rates can be found on the business rates page
If you're in receipt of a council tax discount and your circumstances change (eg your income increases, a child living at home turns 18), you must let us know immediately. If you don't, you could be committing council tax evasion. You can let us know by contacting us.
Council Tax annual billing
The date used to calculate your Council Tax account in preparation for annual billing was the 1 March 2019. Any changes made to your account or payments made/received after this date will not be reflected in your annual bill.
An amended bill will be issued to you in early April to reflect any changes or payments made/received after this date.
