My Debt

What is this debt about?

We collect a variety of debts, including Council Tax, Non-Domestic Rates and Penalty Charge Notices (also known as PCNs) for local authorities (councils). Below are brief details of each.

If your enquiry relates to a Sundry Debt (including Former Tenant Arrears, Overpaid Housing Benefit or other miscellaneous debts), click here for Sundry Debt FAQs , or if it relates to Commercial Rent or an Arrest Warrant please ring us on 0871 677 0070.

Council Tax is a local tax collected by us for councils. It is a tax on domestic property and paid by people who occupy the properties or by the owners of empty properties or homes in multiple occupation. Even if you get benefits you might have to pay something.

Before we are involved you will have been sent several letters and forms by the Council and a Magistrates Court will have decided you owe this money and issued a liability order (often in your absence).

Non Domestic Rates is a local tax collected by us for councils. It is a tax on commercial property and paid by people who occupy the properties or by the owners of empty properties.

Before we are involved you will have been sent several letters and forms and a Magistrates Court will have decided you owe this money and issued a liability order.

Penalty Charge Notices are parking and other traffic related penalties collected by us for councils. PCN stands for penalty charge notice and they are incurred by the registered keeper of a vehicle which is parked too long or in the wrong place or in which someone breaks a traffic rule such as driving in a bus lane. A warrant is issued and authorised by the Traffic Enforcement Centre which is part of the County Court. The penalty is incurred by the registered keeper who might not have been the driver who parked the car or carried out the violation.

Before we are involved you will have been sent several letters and forms and had a warrant of control issued against you.
