So far, £87,810,000 has been collected, or 97. 9 per cent.
Again this is an increase on the same period last year when 96.44 per cent was collected.
But businesses pay national non-domestic rates which is set by central Government.
The city council collects it on behalf of Government which then divvies it up in the form of grants to local authorities.
There are several ways to pay council tax including direct debit, credit or debit cards, internet banking and more. For details visit www.peterborough.gov.uk
