Why am I still awaiting my payment?

You have only just signed up to Direct Debit, and have only had your first instalment taken on or after 15 May 2022

A mismatch between the name on your bank account and the name of the eligible party on your council tax account - this may be due to your account not being updated after a name change, or a spelling error 
What should I do if I still don’t have my payment or I don’t use Direct Debit? 
If your payment has not been received, or if you don’t pay by direct debit, you will need to apply for the Council Tax £150 Energy Rebate Scheme online. 
If you cannot fill out the online application form, get in touch with the Digital City team who will be able to support you through a face-to-face meeting or telephone call.
