Pay your Council Tax
Ways to pay your Council Tax
You can pay your Council Tax by either 10 or 12 monthly instalments and can choose from 5 payment dates which are 1st, 7th, 15th, 21st or 28th of each month. The standard instalment scheme will be 10 instalments but if you wish to pay by 12 instalments then please contact us to arrange this for you. If you are billed later in the year, the number of instalments will be reduced proportionately. Bills for previous years and ceased liabilities are payable in full within 14 days. If you choose not to pay by monthly instalments you can contact us and request to pay the whole year's bill on 1st April or pay half on 1st April and half on 1st October.
