This will provide an opportunity for owners to agree payment terms with local authorities.
If payment is not made in full by 31st August 2014 or if settlement terms are not agreed by that date, an additional late payment fee of €120 per liability date is applied on 1st September 2014. In addition, the entire NPPR liability is increased by a factor of 50% and then frozen.
