We pay transaction fees and charges for receiving your payments.
Listed below are the ways to pay in order of the cost to us - with the least expensive first.
You can help us by choosing the least expensive option that suits you. Please pay by Direct Debit if you can.
Pay by Direct Debit
You’re also protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee, which promises that you’ll get your money back straight away if anything goes wrong.
This guarantee is offered by all banks and building societies that take part in the Direct Debit Scheme.
You'll need your Council Tax reference number - you can find this on your bill.
Pay by phone
This automated service is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
