How to pay your Council Tax

You usually pay your Council Tax bill in instalments over 10 months. 

Your Council Tax account number

When you come to pay your Council Tax, you will need to use your Council Tax account number so that any payment is credited to you and not someone else. 

It is the eight-digit number printed in a box at the top right-hand corner of the bill (eg 11098113).

Pay Council Tax by direct debit

The easiest way to pay your Council Tax is by Direct Debit. You normally pay in 10 monthly instalments, from April to January each year.

You can also download and fill in the Council tax direct debit form.
