Hello welcome to Just Answer. Are you asking if there’s a way to not pay ?
It’s a fine from the council so unfortunately there isn’t a legal way to not pay the surcharge as that is only given when payment is late. Outside of them agreeing with you; the only way to not pay it is if the matter went to court and you provided good reason why you didn’t pay on time and your reason was accepted. Of course going to court would incur more costs so that is risk in itself and should only be done if you are confident of being successful. My suggestion to you is to call them to explain the situation and advise you are willing to pay the £130 full charge and give reasons why the £65 surcharge is unwarranted. Hopefully they will agree with you. The phone call comes up automatically I have no control over it. But please leave a positive rating by clicking the stars above. Thank you, John.
