Council Tax collection rates up again

Council Tax collection rates in Amber Valley continue to be among the best in the country, with 98.8% of all due Council Tax collected during the past financial year.

This represented a small increase on the previous year’s collection rate of 98.7%, which was highest in the County and in the top 25% in the country.

In the past financial year 99% of all due Business Rates were also collected.

An additional 446 new properties were added to the Council Tax base in 2015/16, meaning there are now 56,134 properties which the Borough Council collects Council Tax from. There are also 3,769 Business Rate payers.

Since the introduction of Council Tax in 1993, Amber Valley's Revenues Collection Service has strived to collect as much Council Tax within the year that it is due, aiming for consistent high Council Tax collection rates.

Achieving a high in-year collection rate benefits the Council's overall cash flow. Minimising the level of arrears also benefits council taxpayers generally by reducing the allowance made for non-collection in determining the council tax base for future bills.
