How to Pay
Council Tax is calculated on a daily basis for the period 1 April to 31 March. It can be paid in full when the bill is received at the start of the billing year. Most people, however, pay in ten monthly instalments starting from April to January.
If a taxpayer’s bill is calculated after the billing year has started, then the number of instalments may be fewer than ten, dependent on the time of year.
There are several ways to pay your bill:
Monthly Direct Debit
This is by far the easiest way to pay – no queuing, no postage costs, no need to remember to pay – plus a choice of four payment dates: the 1st, 5th, 12th and 20th.
