RESIDENTS WHO PAY THEIR COUNCIL TAX BY DIRECT DEBIT:
The vast majority of direct debit payers should have now received the £150 energy rebate.
It has not been possible to pay a small number of residents who pay by direct debit for reasons like, the bank account name does not match the name on the council tax bill. This is because we are required to verify all details before payment can be made. The team are working through these now and further payment runs are scheduled to pay these accounts over the coming weeks.
Council tax is a property tax levied on domestic properties, whether owned or rented, and helps to pay for local services in the Stroud District. The charge levied on your property will depend on the band of your property and the parish you live in.
