Direct Debit is a way of paying your bills automatically if you have a bank or building society account.
Paying by Direct Debit means you:
- don't have to remember to pay each month
- get a choice of payment dates – 1st, 6th, 10th, 15th, 21st or 28th
- are covered by the Direct Debit guarantee of a refund if something goes wrong
- can cancel at any time
- don't need to queue at a bank or post office to pay
- don't need to write cheques or carry cash
Setting up a Direct Debit is quick and easy to do. Once you give us your details and permission, we do the work of getting your Council Tax instalment from your bank or building society every month.
Set up a Direct Debit to pay your Council Tax. You will need to have your bank or building society sort code and account number ready.
