Don’t fall victim to fraudsters

We have become aware of fraudsters contacting residents to offer help in reclaiming council tax, housing rent or other payments paid by Direct Debit.

There are many ways you can pay your council tax.

Direct Debit

Online with a debit/credit card

Customers can make online bill payments in a safe and secure environment. If you have a debit or credit card you can pay your bill via the Council's online payment system.

By phone with a debit/credit card

Just ring CallPay on 0300 555 7000 (for quality and training purposes calls may be recorded and monitored) when a payment is due. Please have your account number and debit or credit card ready when calling.
