How to pay your council tax bill

There are several ways to pay your council tax bill, but the easiest and best way is by direct debit.

However you pay, always be sure to quote your council tax billing number. It is on the front of your bill, just below your name and address.

Direct debit

If you have a bank or building society account, the best way to pay your council tax is by direct debit.

You can choose to pay on the 1st, the 10th or the 20th of the month and, as long as there is enough money available in your account, the monthly instalment amounts shown on your bill will be collected automatically.

Setting up a direct debit

If you are the only person needed to authorise a direct debit instruction, the easiest way to set up a direct debit on your bank account is to use our direct debit set-up web page.

Alternatively, you can set up your direct debit over the phone by calling our Billing and Collection team using the contact details on this page. You can also download and complete apdf icon direct debit instruction [133kb] form.

Online payments (24-hour service)

Go to our secure online payment system and follow the on-screen instructions.

You can pay with most major debit or credit cards (not Diners Club card or American Express).

If you pay by credit card, you will have to pay a 1.62% surcharge to offset some of the costs we incur for using this payment method.
