The clock is ticking for Calderdale residents who have just five days left to scoop £6,000 as part of a council tax promotion run by Calderdale Council and Bacs Payment Schemes Limited (Bacs).
The Council has teamed up with Bacs to offer their residents a chance to win the £6,000 prize, simply for paying their council tax by Direct Debit.
Dawneth Perry, Bacs’ local authority specialist, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for one lucky Calderdale resident to be in with a chance of winning a cash prize of £6,000.
“Direct Debit can save council tax payers time, help with budgeting and also gives peace of mind that payments won’t be missed. At the same time, everyone switching to pay by Direct Debit will be helping their local council to save time and money, too.”
Residents who already pay their council tax by Direct Debit will automatically be entered into the prize draw.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Cllr Steve Sweeney, said: “There isn’t long left to make sure you’re entered into the competition to win £6000, simply by switching your Council Tax payment method to Direct Debit.
“Paying your Council tax by Direct Debit is the easiest way to stay in control of your bill, and this competition is a great extra incentive.”
To be in with a chance of winning the £6,000 prize, Calderdale residents must register to pay their council tax bill by Direct Debit before 5pm on July 31 2015, either by returning a completed Direct Debit Instruction form by post, signing-up to Direct Debit online www.calderdale.gov.uk/counciltax/, or calling 01422 288003 to arrange over the phone.
