Council Tax - Ways to pay your Council Tax

Direct Debit

 Council Tax is due on the 1st of each month. If you would prefer to pay your Council Tax on a different day consider paying by Direct Debit as this gives you a choice of 28 payment dates. If you pay by direct debit, you can be sure that your payment will reach us on time and you won't have to worry about further recovery action. You can also request to pay your bill over 12 months instead of 10 months, weekly or fortnightly on a Monday or Friday. Direct Debit is the safest and easiest way to pay your Council Tax.
