1. Changing your instalment date or set up a Direct Debit

Setting up a direct debit is a simple and quick way to pay your Council Tax. It spreads the cost out monthly, helps with household budgeting and avoids you falling behind.

If you already have one set up it doesn’t take long to update your bank account details or change your instalment date.

Before you start

We collect direct debits on the 1st, 15th and 25th of each month, you decide which date works for you.
