Pay your council tax

Information on how to pay your bill.

Council tax is usually paid in 10 instalments from April to January, however under new rules you can apply to pay in 12 instalments.

If you wish to do so your request must be received in writing by 1 April. Where requests are received after 1 April, council tax will be payable in the number of months remaining up to and including March.

Direct debit

This is the easiest payment method. You can choose to pay on the 1, 10, 18 or 25 of the month. Paying by direct debit saves you the worry of remembering to pay each month, writing cheque's, postal costs or queuing to pay.

In addition, you have the added bonus of the direct debit guarantee, which means an immediate refund will be paid to you in the unlikely event of an error occurring.
