    Many of our current Council Tenants use paypoint to pay their rent. This costs us 0.79p per transaction. As we are are a two tier authority, only 12% of the Council Tax goes to the Borough. We were looking at weekly payment options, however if we accept our share of the £100 million that will lead to ver small payments. 8.5% of Band H is £245, around £5 per week. We get 60p but it has cost us 89p to collect.

    Anyone else been thinking about the cost of collecting these sums?

    yep…same thoughts here. The 8.5% cap produces exactly the effect of large numbers of small uneconomic balances which the Government have suggeeted we avoid.
