Council Tax Ways to Pay

Direct Debit

The safe, quick and easy way to pay, with a full guarantee against errors. Compared to other payment methods, monthly direct debiting offers you the following advantages:  

  • Saves You Time - No more queuing to pay, no more cheques to write!

  • Saves You Money - No more stamps to buy or envelopes to find!

  • Lower Administration Costs - Help to keep the council tax as low as possible by reducing handling costs.

  • Gives You Peace Of Mind - Your bank/building society makes sure your bill is paid on time.

  • Payment For Someone Else - e.g. an elderly relative.

  • Full Guarantee Against Errors - See the Direct Debit Guarantee

Setting up a direct debit to pay your council tax in monthly instalments is simple, call 0300 555 8000  to sign up over the phone, or just complete and return a direct debit instruction. To obtain an instruction form:

You will be notified of the amounts to be debited at least 14 days before the first payment date. If you have any queries about the direct debit scheme, please telephone 0300 555 8000, email our Billing Section or visit the Direct Debit website
