Direct Debit is the safest and easiest way to pay your Council Tax. Direct Debit will ensure that payments are made on time and for the right amount so you never forget to pay your bill

Payments in a full financial year may be made over 10 or 12 months, however fewer instalments will be given if you set up Direct Debit later in the financial year.
If you have an existing Direct Debit in place, any new details submitted for the same account will replace the existing instruction.

Once the application is complete it will be processed and confirmation sent to you.
Your bank will need 10 working days to set up the Direct Debit, so make sure that you select a regular payment date at least 10 working days after the date when you fill out the application.
