Your council tax is paid in 10 monthly instalments from April, unless you have asked to pay over 12 instalments. Payments are due on or before the 15th of each month unless you have chosen to pay by Direct Debit.

If you become liable for Council Tax during the year then your instalments will be adjusted according to the number of payment dates remaining.

Pay your council tax online

Direct debit is a simple, convenient and safe way of paying your council tax.

  • You can choose from 3 payment dates - 5th, 15th or 28th of each month.
  • Setting up a Direct Debit is simple and free, and you can cancel them at any time by writing to your bank or building society.
  • You don't have to renew your Direct Debit each year.
  • Direct Debit is guaranteed by the banks and building societies involved, so if a mistake is made you will get a full and immediate refund.

You will be notified in writing of the amounts, dates and frequency of payments to be deducted from your account and of any changes 10 days in advance, to give you time to query them if necessary.

If the payment details change, there are no new forms to fill in. Simply sign one form and the changes you agree are made automatically.
