Council Tax & Non Domestic Rate Collection
How we are doing
Summary of overall performance 2014/15
We continue to rank amongst the best performing local authorities for council tax and non-domestic rates in the country in terms of the percentage we collect in the year it is due and also in terms of administrative cost per dwelling. Encouraging taxpayers to pay by electronic methods has increased again this year helping to reduce our costs of collection further.
