Pay Council Tax
You can choose to pay your Council Tax over 10 months or 12 months. We will set your payments over 10 months unless you tell us that you would like to pay Council Tax over 12 months.
You can set up, amend or cancel a direct debit using the online form below. If you are setting up a Direct Debit, payments for Council Tax can be debited from your nominated bank account on either the 1st, 15th or 28th of the month.
You can also pay your Council Tax online using a debit or credit card.
If payment is made by credit card there is a transaction charge for all payments of £50.00 or over. There is no fee for using a debit card.
