Why have I been sent a reminder/summons?

Non-Domestic Rates are payable on demand over 10 monthly instalments (you may now request 12), the details of which are given on your bill. If an instalment is missed a Reminder notice will be issued. If you bring your payments up to date and a future instalment is missed a Second Reminder will be issued. 

In each case if the sum outstanding is not brought up to date a summons will be issued. If you bring your payments up to date and maintain further payments as they become due no further action will be taken, default on future instalments will result in a Final Notice being issued, allowing 7 days to make payment of the full year’s balance.

If the balance is not paid within the time allowed, a Summons Notice will be issued, and you will incur an additional charge, currently £60.00. If a liability order is granted at the magistrates’ court a further £25.00 charge will also be incurred.
