Pay Council Tax by Direct Debit

The easiest and safest way to pay council tax is by Direct Debit. Please complete and submit the online Direct Debit form and we will do the rest.

For more information consult the Direct Debit website directly.

Council Tax is usually split into 10 equal monthly payments. However, you can now choose to spread the payments over 12 months.

If you already pay by Direct Debit and want to spread your payments email the Council Tax team.

Use the subject line 'Extended Payments' so that we can prioritise the request. Also provide your name, address and billing reference number.
