Our local taxation and benefits service is currently experiencing technical difficulties with the phone lines. It is leading to poor sound quality on calls and in some circumstances calls may be terminated without notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and our technical officers are working to fix the problem.

Budget Changes 11 March 2020

In the March 2020 budget, the Government introduced a new range of measures to support the retail sector.
The annual bills for 2020/21 have already been produced and posted out. You may have received this bill or it will be you in the next few days.
As soon as we have received the official confirmation from the Government we will be working with our software partners to implement these changes and will issue revised rate bills as soon as practically possible.
In the meantime, it is advisable to pay the instalments as shown on your current annual bill.
Any overpayment will be automatically be refunded.
