Pay Council Tax

Pay by Direct Debit

The easiest way to pay your Council Tax is by Direct Debit online through the Waverley Portal. 

Before registering for the Waverley Portal, you need to have a Council Tax account set up.  If you are moving to Waverley for the first time or to a new address within Waverley, use the moving forms to register for Council Tax.   

What is the Waverley Portal?   

You can use the Waverley Portal secure service to view your Council Tax information online and manage your payments.

Register for an account

To register, you will need the following information:
