The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE to­tal coun­cil tax bill to be col­lected by Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil for 2011/12 was £63,108,000.

Of that fig­ure, by April 30, it had col­lected £60,716,000 or 96.21 per cent of the to­tal.

The fig­ure is marginally bet­ter than this time last year when 96.11 per cent was col­lected.

Mean­while, busi­ness rates due in the city for 2011/12 was £89,444,000.

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
