Council Tax and Business Rate collection
Figures published by the Welsh Government show that Flintshire County Council, with the support of local residents and businesses, is the highest performing Council in Wales in its collection of Council Tax and Business Rates.
In the financial year 2018/19, the Council collected 98.2% of Council Tax in the year it fell due, which is well above the national average of 97.3%. This places Flintshire as the highest performing Council in Wales. This collection figure is the highest collection level achieved by Flintshire.
The Council also collected 99.2% of Business Rates in the year it fell due which also places Flintshire as the highest performing Council in Wales for the collection of commercial rates.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance, Councillor Glyn Banks, said:
“We are proud of these achievements and to be recognised by Welsh Government as a Council with an excellent track record of collecting local taxes. We also recognise that some households and businesses struggle to pay and would urge anyone who is finding it difficult to pay to always make early contact with the Revenues service on 01352 704848 so that we can provide practical help and guidance on the best way to pay.”
