AVBC - Council Tax Deferral Information

During this time your council tax is needed more than ever, however Amber Valley Borough Council appreciate that during the Coronavirus outbreak, financial hardship is being placed on households. Amber Valley Borough Council won't take any new recovery action if residents are temporarily unable to pay council tax, so in effect Amber Valley Borough Council have also postponed new debt recovery action for anyone falling into council tax or business rates arrears.

Amber Valley Borough Council have also put together three options for Amber Valley bill payers.

  1. Continue to pay your bill as normal and this will go towards paying for important services for the community that are needed right now.
  2. If your household income is low, you can apply for council tax support. There are also a number of discounts and exemptions that you may be eligible for.
  3. Defer your council tax payments until later on in the year. Although we understand this is necessary for some households, we ask that those households who can afford to carry on paying as normal to please do so that we can pay all the relevant authorities as soon as possible for the services they provide.
