How to Pay

Save time, pay council tax online image

Council Tax is calculated on a daily basis for the period 1 April to 31 March and can be paid in full when the bill is received at the start of the billing year or in ten monthly instalments.

If a taxpayer’s bill is calculated after the billing year has started, the number of instalments may be fewer than ten, dependent on the time of year.
