Does Council Tax Affect Your Credit Rating?

In order for a debt or missed payment to affect your credit file rating, your creditor needs to submit this information to credit file agencies like Experian or Equifax.


Local Authorities do not submit this data, so your credit rating will be unaffected. That being said, not paying your council tax can lead to all sorts of other problems.
