Pay your council tax

Sign-up to pay council tax and business rates by Direct Debit with your 8 digit council tax or business rates reference number and bank account details to hand.

You will need a debit card or a major credit card.

Always quote the eight-digit reference number shown on the top right hand corner of your bill, beginning with a 3.

Monthly Direct Debit

The easiest way to pay, no queuing, no postage costs, no need to remember to pay and a choice of four payment dates - the 1st, 5th, 12th or 20th.

You can also choose to pay your annual bill over 10 or 12 months, or 11 months if you choose the 1st of the month.

If you choose to set up a Direct Debit after April, we may not be able to offer you the full 10, 11 or 12 month options.
