Council Tax final notice

When you receive a final notice

You will receive a final notice when:

  • You are late for any instalment payments after receiving a reminder notice.

You will be able to check which payments were late and when the reminder notices were sent on your MyHarrow account.

If you believe you shouldn't have been sent a final notice, you can find out what to do on the disputes page.

Payment options

You must pay the amount shown on the final notice within seven days of the date the notice was issued (this appears at the top of the notice) to avoid being sent a summons to court.

When a Final Notice is issued you lose the right to pay by instalments and you will have to pay the full balance. No other payment arrangement can be made for a final notice.

This is the last notice that you will receive before a summons is sent. To avoid getting into further debt find out how to manage your payments.
