If you or anyone else liable for paying council tax miss a payment date, you will be sent a reminder by your local council requesting you to pay the outstanding bill. You will be given seven days to contact the council and make a payment arrangement when you receive this first reminder notice. You should be able to pay by instalments that are affordable. However, if you’re unable to reach a suitable agreement, you will be sent a second reminder letter. You now have 14 days to pay the amount owed in full.

If you have been sent two reminder letters from the local authority and have still yet to make a payment arrangement, the council are within their right to apply for a summary warrant through the Sheriff Court requesting you pay any outstanding debt. Once this summary warrant has been granted, they will send your contact details, including the amount you owe to Stirling Park. Stirling Park sheriff officers will send you the summary warrant which will state how much you owe including details on how to set up a repayment plan. Expect a 10% penalty charge to be added on top of the amount owed as part of their fees.
