If you are unable to pay your bill, it is important that you contact the Collections Department (Opkrævningen) in Aarhus Municipality. Otherwise, interest and fees can accumulate on your bill.

The Collections Department can tell you about your options for putting a bill on hold or agreeing upon an instalment plan. If you have debts to the municipality, the Collections Department can help you set up a plan for paying through instalments.

Off-setting against your debt

If you receive overpaid tax or other receivables from the public sector, these will automatically be offset to cover your debt with Aarhus Municipality.

If your debt relates to payment for daycare and youth activities, there may also be an off-setting of child and youth benefit.

This also applies even if you have entered into an instalment plan.
