Pay your council tax
The easiest way to pay is by Direct Debit.
You'll need the online key code from your council tax bill to log-in to your account (through Account Details), follow the instructions from there.
We are currently unable to process new Direct Debit requests for existing account holders using the My Account system. If you wish to pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit, please complete and return the mandate form included with your annual bill.
Or, fill in and return a direct debit form [PDF, 95kB] or call 01223 457790 to set up a direct debit.
You can pay on either the 5th or 15th of the month.
Please continue to make payment by your current method until you receive a new bill showing details of the direct debit payments.
