Council Tax - How do I pay?

Pay by Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the best way to pay.  It's simple, quick and safe.  You can choose from four payment dates - 1st, 8th, 15th or 23rd of the month.

When you sign up to direct debit you're automatically covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee, which is offered by all banks and building societies that take part in the Direct Debit scheme. 

We will notify you ten working days in advance of your account being debited if the amounts to be paid or the payment date changes. 

If we or your bank or building society make an error, you are guaranteed a full and immediate refund. You can cancel a Direct Debit at any time by writing to your bank or building society. Please send a copy of your letter to us.

Sign up for Direct Debit.
