Shropshire Council has joined councils around the country, including Telford and Wrekin, in offering a council tax holiday for households whose cash flow is suffering from the Covid-19 outbreak. The deal is that you can delay council tax payments due on 1 April 2020 to 1 June 2020. At that point you can either pay the entire bill or the usual ten months of payments.

If you already have payments spread over twelve months, this scheme will make no difference to you.

The application form is straightforward. You will need your council tax bill to hand to provide the 13-digit Account Reference.

If you are struggling financially, you are on benefits or moving onto benefits, Shropshire Council may be able to help through the Discretionary Housing Payment or the Local Support and Prevention Fund.
