Council tax Pay your council tax by direct debit

Pay your council tax by direct debit

Setting up a direct debit to pay your council tax in monthly instalments is simple. You’ll need your 13-digit council tax account number to get started.

A safe, cost-effective and easy way to pay. Compared to other payment methods, monthly direct debiting offers you the following advantages:

  • Saves you time – the amount automatically changes each year without you having to do anything, and you'll be notified at least 14 days before the first payment date
  • Saves you money – no phone calls to make when payment is due
  • Lower administration costs – it's the cheapest way to administer payments
  • Gives you peace of mind – your bank/building society makes sure your bill is paid on time
  • Gives you a full guarantee against errors
