Late and non payment
Payments are due on the 15th of each month from May to February each financial year in accordance with your most recent bill.
If by 30 September of the current financial year you have failed to make payment in accordance with your bill you will no longer have the right to pay by instalments.
A Final Notice will then be issued for the remaining balance and will confirm that you have 14 days in which to pay this amount in full. If you are unable to pay this amount in full you must contact a member of the Local Taxes Team on 01738 477430 to set up a Direct Debit.
Should your account fall into arrears after 30 September a Final Notice will be issued.
Should you fail to pay the amount detailed on the Final Notice in full or set up a Direct Debit, any unpaid arrears are recoverable by Summary Warrant proceedings. Perth & Kinross Council will apply to Perth Sheriff Court to grant a Summary Warrant against you.
The granting of a Summary Warrant results in a penalty being applied to your account which is 10% of the balance outstanding at the time the Summary Warrant is granted. You will then be issued with a Summary Warrant Notice which will give you 7 days to make payment in full.
Failure to make payment in full will result in your account being passed to Messrs Stirling Park, Sheriff Officer for collection.
