The government’s generosity and help for families continue as residents will be able to choose to pay their council tax bills in 12 instalments or 10 as it currently stand. Families will also be able pay their council tax through electronic billing and direct debits.

Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, said

“These further common sense reforms will help families and pensioners with their cost of living, keeping bills down and making bills easier to pay.

“This Government is on the side of ordinary families, who work hard and do the right thing.”
