My first council tax micro payment

I've just made my first council tax payment for an empty rental property.  A payment of £14.52 has just been made for the two week period the property was empty between tenants. During the period that the property was empty, the bins weren't filled nor emptied, no person used the local services supplied by the council, nor trod on its pavements.

However, the information for the payment has to be processed, three letters have been sent out, my payment call had to be answered, not to mention my own time.

Roll on the stream of £7.56, £12.22, £3.68 payments that will follow for each of my properties rental voids.

Let's hope this change brings the added boost our economy requires. Who needs a manufacturing industry when we can achieve recovery through micro-payments.

Don't we all just love being landlords.

I thought the payments only apply to council tenants in Local authority accommodation and not private tenants or landlords?
