Reminder and final notice
A reminder or final notice is issued if you fail to make payment of an instalment by the date it is due. The notice tells you the amount you need to pay to bring your account up to date.
When your instalments are due
Your Council Tax instalments are due to be paid on or before the 1st of each month. The only exception is for customers paying by direct debit who can choose to pay on either the 1st, 15th or 25th of each month.
You can set up a direct debit or find out more on our Direct Debit page.
If you have received a reminder notice, you need to bring your account up to date within 7 days. If payment is not received as requested on the reminder notice, recovery action may continue and a summons issued.
If you make payment of the sum requested on the reminder notice, no further action will be taken as long as you continue to make payment of your remaining monthly instalments on time.
If you believe that you have already brought your account up to date, you can use My Account to check if we have received your payment.
Haringey will only issue two reminder notices to you during one financial year.
If you are late paying for a third time in a year, you will be issued with a final notice which will cancel your monthly instalments.
Your instalment plan will only be reinstated if you bring your instalments up to date and set up a direct debit to ensure future payments are made on time.
