Pay Council Tax

You usually pay your Council Tax bill in instalments over 10 months from April to January.  If you would prefer to pay over 12 months from April to March please call 01483 523500 to request this.

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

Your Council tax account number is the eight-digit number printed in a box at the top right-hand corner of the bill (i.e 12345678)
