Other ways to pay

Pay by direct debit

Due to essential maintenance, you cannot set up a direct debit at the moment. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Pay online

You need your debit or credit card and your council tax reference number. Paying like this keeps your costs down, but it means you have to remember when to pay. Why not pay by direct debit instead?
