Pay your council tax

Set up a Direct Debit

Pay your council tax by Direct Debit to save time and reduce our handling costs - this lets us keep council tax as low as possible.

Set up a Direct Debit for your council tax payment

What you need to know:

  • Direct Debits can be paid on 1st, 15th or 28th of the month over 10 or 12 months
  • payments are made automatically but can be cancelled at any time
  • you can enjoy the peace of mind of never being late to pay
  • everything’s protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee – you’ll get a refund from your bank if there’s a mistake

To change your payment date or bank details, complete a new Direct Debit form.


Pay online

You can pay your council tax by debit or credit card.

We have been making improvements to online payments and you will be taken to a form, where you can check your account balance and pay by debit or credit card. To find out more about the changes we have made, watch our video.

What you'll need:

  • your council tax account number
  • the postcode for the property you're paying for
