How to find us

What happens if you don't pay?

If you fail to make payment by the due date a reminder may be issued. Reminders must be paid within seven days or the full amount outstanding becomes payable. If the full amount isn't paid then a summons will be issued whereupon costs will be charged.

After the date the summons is sent then unless payment is made in full (including the summons costs) an application will be made for a Liability Order and will be done in your absence if you fail to attend.

Should you fail to pay the required amount in full or contact my office within the next 14 days, the matter will be passed to an enforcement agency where further costs will be incurred for each Liability Order sent, as per the schedule below.
