Rates arrears

Rates arrears are outstanding amounts from previous years. Arrears shown on your annual rates notice must be paid immediately, unless a payment arrangement has been approved.

Arrears may be subject to legal action without further notice.

Penalty interest on late payments

When you pay your rates and charges, it is essential that your payment is received by the due date. Interest may be charged on the overdue amount if your instalment is not paid by the due date.

The interest rate for the 2021-22 rating period is 10% per annum. This interest rate is fixed under Section 2 of the Penalty Interest Rates Act 1983.
