Making Cash Payments to the Council

West Somerset Council will accept coinage as payment of debts up to a total of, but not exceeding, £20.  

West Somerset Council will accept Bank of England notes as payment of debts up to a total of, but not exceeding, £500, without reference to the Support Services Line Manager.

This directive has been issued in order to prevent an unreasonable amount of officer time and resource being used to count and verify large sums of cash. 

It will also prevent the Council from being liable for bank charges incurred when banking large sums of coinage.

This directive will continue to allow customers to settle average bills over the counter while minimising customer waiting time.

Thank you for your co-operation.
