Appeals against Penalty Notices

Why are penalty notices imposed?

We can imposes a penalty on you for failing to supply information, supplying false information, or failing to notify us regarding a discount, exemption or empty homes premium; however, you can appeal our decision.

When to appeal

Initially, you should write to us to explain why you feel the Penalty Notice is incorrect. We will then review our decision and advise you accordingly.
