The Direct Debit form should only be completed if you have registered for Council Tax and have received a Council Tax bill for the property concerned.
If you have not registered for Council Tax at the property you must notify us of your change in circumstances in order that your account can be set up.
Set up a Direct Debit
The simplest and most convenient way to pay your Council Tax is by Direct Debit.
You can choose when to pay:-
- Monthly - on 1st or 15th over 10 months or 12 months
- Fortnightly - on a Friday over 21 or 26 instalments
- Weekly - on a Friday over 42 or 52 instalments
You can also set up a direct debit by calling Local Taxes on 01738 477430 or you can download and complete a Council Tax Direct Debit Mandate [626Kb].
If your account has progressed to a Summary Warrant you cannot set up a Direct Debit online. You must contact a member of the Local Taxes Team to discuss your payment options.
