The Rate List for 2018 has been prepared and is available for inspection at the Parish Hall during normal office hours, from 1st June until 21st June, 2018.
Please read the notes printed with the Notice of Assessment carefully as this will set out the procedure that needs to be followed should you wish to make a formal Review or Appeal. Should you have any concerns, you must initially discuss these with a member of the Assessment Committee on the following date:
Tuesday 5th June, 2018 from 7.00 p.m. – 9.00 p.m.
It is essential that you telephone 481619 to make an appointment.
Please note the following regarding your Notice of Assessment:
- All properties rented furnished are charged entirely to the foncier (owner).
- The rate for all properties, whether occupied or not, is charged for the whole year.
- The number of quarters shown on the notice will only represent a monetary value once the rate per quarter has been agreed at a Parish Assembly.
- As an indication, last year's rate was set at 1.98p per domestic quarter and 2.50p per non-domestic quarter.
If you think you may find it difficult to pay the full amount when you receive the demand in July, please contact the Parish Hall office now and discuss arranging regular weekly or monthly payments. This will prevent additional charges being added to your account due to a late payment surcharge and/or Petty Debts costs.
If you are in receipt of Income Support, this benefit contributes to both your rent and rates and it is very important you set up a regular payment with the Parish or save so you can pay your rates account in full to the Parish.
