Have you received a Council Tax Reminder / Final Notice?

Council Tax Reminder / Final Notices were issued on 17th July 2014. If you have received a Reminder / Final Notice, the full payment requested needs to be received by Cheshire East Council by 5th August 2014 at the latest, to prevent a Summons being issued.

For further information regarding Reminder / Final Notices, please visit the Reminder / Final Notice section of our Recovery Precess & FAQ's page.

Should you need to speak to a member of staff regarding the Reminder / Final Notice you have received, please note we are experiencing a heavy volume of calls at the moment. Therefore we apologise if you experience a delay in contacting the office.

Council Tax Payments to New Bank Account

On 1st April 2014 Cheshire East Council changed banks from the Co-op to Barclays. As our Co-op bank account has now closed, any payments made to our old bank account will be returned to your own bank account, although there could be a delay in this occurring. Therefore, the payment will not reach your Council Tax or Business Rates account.

Payments should now be made directly to our new bank account, details which are available on our Payment Options page.

What is Council Tax?

Council Tax is a locally set tax that is payable on all domestic properties. It is your contribution to the many services the Council provides such as schools, roads, and rubbish collection, as well as the Police, Fire Service and many other local services. Some properties will be exempt from Council Tax.
