Our history

Council Tax Advisors was formed as a direct result of our founder’s personal experiences with Bailiffs/Enforcement Agents. He owed Council Tax after a period of ill health and the Bailiffs that attended his property acted outside of the law. Subsequently, one Bailiff had his certificate revoked and the other, retired to avoid any further embarrassment.

Council Tax Advisors was originally a limited company, which charged a fee to mediate on behalf of clients. In September 2013, it was decided that Council Tax Advisors would no longer charge a fee to mediate on behalf of its clients and converted the limited company into a Community Interest Company (CIC), which saw Council Tax Advisors officially become a Not-for-Profit organisation. To further their commitment to this change Council Tax Advisors then became full members of AdviceUK.


It is through our own personal experiences that we have been able understand, advise and help
