How to pay your Council Tax
You can pay your Council Tax using one of the following options:
Save time when you pay by Direct Debit
We could all do with a little more time and a lot less hassle in our lives, so why not save yourself some time today by switching your council tax bill payment to Direct Debit.
Millions of council tax payers across the UK are already saving themselves valuable time every month by paying their council tax automatically by Direct Debit. Just set a Direct Debit up once and you can be confident that the payments will be made automatically, on time every time, while you get on with enjoying yourself.
What’s more, there’s no need to worry in the unlikely event that anything goes wrong. Every payment is fully protected under the Direct Debit Guarantee, ensuring that you will get a full refund should an error occur.
Paying your council tax the Direct Debit way means you can choose which of our four monthly payment dates suits you best. What’s more, because it is automated you won’t have to worry about missing a payment, and yet you stay absolutely in control and can cancel the Direct Debit at any time should you wish to.
