There are many ways you can pay your council tax.
Pay your council tax, business rates or council housing rent by direct debit and you could win £100.
From April 2022, anyone paying their council tax and/or business rates by direct debit will be entered into a monthly prize draw to win £100. Housing have been running this incentive scheme for a few years, but now people paying their council tax and business rates by direct debit also have the chance to win £100. The first draw for the new council tax and business rates competition will be held in April 2022 and will include people who already pay by direct debit as well as new joiners.
