Pay your Council Tax

The easiest way to pay your Council Tax is by Direct Debit, but you can also pay online.

Council Tax is normally paid in ten monthly instalments from 1 April - the statutory instalment scheme - or as shown on your bill. You can arrange to pay in 12 monthly instalments. To do this you need to contact the Council Tax team to make the request.

You can set up a pdf icon Direct Debit [131kb] for your Council Tax. You can also call us on 01932 425400 to set up a Direct Debit. We'll give you at least 10 days notice before we take the first payment.
