You can pay your Council Tax by Direct Debt, online, by phone, bank transfer, at the post office or by post.

Pay by Direct Debit

Set up a Direct Debit so your Council Tax payments are paid directly to us each month from your bank account. You don't have to remember to make your payment. You also have the reassurance of the Direct Debit guarantee.
