Paying your Council Tax

There are a number of ways to pay your Council Tax.

Pay by direct debit

This is the easiest, most convenient and cheapest way of paying, for both the customer and the council. When the direct debit is set up your instalment payment will automatically be debited from your bank account.

If the amounts to be paid or payment dates change you will be notified at least 10 working days in advance. If you wish to set up a direct debit, please register for a portal account and complete the online direct debit form.

On your online account you can also opt to receive your Council Tax bills electronically.
