Have your say on reporting non-payment of Council Tax to Credit Reference Agencies


Have your say on reporting non-payment of Council Tax to Credit Reference Agencies

Proposed scheme

In order to encourage more citizens to pay their Council Tax, the Council is thinking about reporting the non-payment of Council Tax to Credit Reference Agencies. The Agencies would then include this information on an individual's credit report.

Background

Approximately 8 million of Council Tax is currently not collected within the year which costs Nottingham City Council more money to chase and collect. This non-payment impacts on the services which the Council can provide for its citizens.

Individuals may not pay their Council Tax for a variety of reasons. Council Tax is classed as a priority debt which means that non-payment can threaten serious legal action. Currently non-payment of Council Tax is not reflected on an individual's credit report. This means that some people may prioritise paying lower priority debts rather than Council Tax.

Support for citizens experiencing financial difficulty

In the case of non-payment due to financial difficulty the Council will attempt to make a reasonable agreement wherever possible, based on an individual's circumstances. The team will also signpost citizens for independent debt advice.
