    Council Tex xonfusion 4th Dec 17 at 2:36 PM

    Until my partner moved in 26th August weekend I was claiming 25% single persons discount. I'm self employed so keen to ensure I'm always legal etc. Anyway, I informed the council he moved in and to remove my discount, only now it seems they've calculated the remaining payments as though I've never had the discount. My payments with discount were 110 a month which have now shot up to 192 a month!

    I don't know if I'm being thick but here's my workings out:

    Yearly Monthly
    Total for year [/INDENT]1468 146.8
    with discount (25%) 110.1

    Paid 6*110 660.6
    August to Jan 5 months 587.2 146.8

    Paying 4 * 192 768

    Actual for year
    Payment to August 660.6
    Payment to Jan 768
    Total 1428.6

    What I expected
    Payment to August 660.6
    remaining 4 * 146.8 587.2
    Shortfall to september payment 37

    I calculate you owe 1320.20 for whole year, so however much you have paid up to your last monthly payment should be subtracted from that figure and the result divided by how many months left to pay to give monthly figure now required
