Pay your Council Tax by credit or debit card

Make one-off card payments online towards your council tax, or setup a Direct Debit.

Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the easiest way to pay your council tax.

Normally, payments will be taken over ten monthly instalments. These will go out on the first working day of each month from April to January. You can choose to pay on different dates or pay weekly if that is better for you.

You can also apply to set up a Direct Debit by post. Download the Direct Debit Mandate Form and send it to us.

Or, contact us and we will take your account details.

If you start paying by Direct Debit part way through the financial year you will need to make sure that your payments are up to date.
