1. Pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit
Please complete the online form by clicking on the blue start button below.
Direct Debit ensures your instalments are paid on time and you don't need to fill in a new form every year.
You can spread the cost of your Council Tax over 2, 10 or 12 monthly interest-free payments and choose to pay on the 1st, 17th or 25th of the month.
These may be reduced depending upon the number of months remaining in the financial year of April to March.
For example if you set up Direct Debit part way through the year but would normally want to pay over:
10 instalments (April to January) for the whole year, select 10 instalments and the system will work out a lower number of instalments. For example, June to January - 8 instalments.
12 instalments (April to March) for the whole year, select 12 instalments and the system will work out a lower number of instalments. For example, June to March - 10 instalments.
We do not currently accept Direct Debit on weekly or fortnightly instalments. For these, please ask your bank to set up a standing order.
If you have reached final demand stage, we need to talk to you before we can set up your Direct Debit as you have lost your right to pay by instalments. Please provide your mobile or landline so we can discuss reinstating them.
To change your Direct Debit payment date or bank details for Council Tax, you need to complete a new Direct Debit instruction. This new Direct Debit will automatically replace the existing one.
