Coronavirus council tax update

During the coronavirus outbreak, residents have enquired about delaying their council tax payments.

Please note, central government provides council tax support to those on a low income and with savings less than £16,000. 

This will be additionally supplemented by up to a maximum of £150 for the coming year as a result of coronavirus. 

Find out how to apply for council tax support.

At this time, Havant Borough Council will not be deferring council tax for all residents.

For those most at need, we are agreeing on a case-by-case basis on changes to their council tax payments.

Just 12 per cent of your total council tax bill is received by Havant Borough Council. The remainder supports key infrastructure such as:

  • Hampshire County Council
  • Hampshire Adult Social Care
  • The Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire
  • Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service

The council does not have the necessary cash-flow to delay council tax payments from all residents.
