When paying online, you can set up a recurring card payment from your debit card. However, if you have arrears and have received a reminder letter requesting payment, you must contact the Council Tax team first to agree an appropriate repayment arrangement amount.

Request a Council Tax payment card
Direct Debit, and the payment methods noted above, are the most efficient ways to pay Council Tax and we would encourage all of our customers to choose one of these options.
However, if these options are not suitable for you, please get in touch with the Council Tax team and we can advise if there are any other payment methods available which would be more suitable to your circumstances.
