Council Tax Direct Debit

Set up Council Tax Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the simplest and most convenient way for you to pay Council Tax – you won’t miss a payment, and you’re protected against mistakes, under the terms of the Direct Debit Guarantee.

To set up a Direct Debit, you’ll need your Council Tax account reference number (available on your Council Tax bill) and the details of the bank or building society account that you want to pay your Council Tax from.

The easiest way to set up a Direct Debit is to do it online.
