Paying Your Council Tax

Under the statutory instalment scheme, you must pay your Council Tax in 10 monthly instalments between April and January.  For bills issued after April, the number of instalments reduces.  If you would like to spread your payments over the whole financial year (April to March) instead of the statutory 10 months, please telephone us on 01643 703704 immediately.

Your instalments are due on the 1st of each month, unless you choose to pay by Direct Debit.

If you wish to pay the full amount in one payment, please do this by 1st April.
 
If you wish to pay half-yearly, please pay the value of the first 5 instalments shown on your bill by 1st April and the balance by 1st September.
