Council Tax help

To find out what options are available to you, simply complete the online form. Our advice is confidential, free and with no obligation. Please note that we do not offer any loans or credit. We specialise in a legal debt write off tool called an IVA.

Unpaid council tax bills are taken very seriously by local authorities, who are fast to take bailiff action against you to recover council tax arrears. Bailiffs will call at your house threatening to seize your belongings. The council may also take court action to deduct money from your wages, leaving you with even less money to pay your other bills.

Utility bill debt

If you miss one or more payment to your utility provider – be it for gas, electricity or water – you may find yourself falling behind to the point where the debt becomes unmanageable. Utility costs can arise unexpectedly, and occasionally paper bills can get lost in the mail. But, no matter what the reason might be, failing to pay on time will unsettle creditors. Utility companies appreciate good communication, so take the time to get in touch whenever you have a payment issue. If you can, set money aside for bills ahead of schedule and set up standing orders to make sure you’re meeting the payment deadline every month. If your utility company is causing you to worry by demanding money, please speak to Bennett Jones.

I would like to thank Bennett Jones for helping me with my IVA proposal. I'm a glass half full person but the realities of life and unforseen circumstances with finances had taken its toll. Bennett Jones have helped me to have a fresh start and take control back of my finances. It's a huge load lifted off my shoulders.......

I would like to thank Bennett Jones for all their help over the past 5 years.. I was in a pretty dark place financially. And through the debt advice helpline I found Bennett Jones.. From start to finish they have been professional sympathetic and always helpful. I've recommended friends who are also happy with their service. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
