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.
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.
