Pay your Council Tax online

You will need:

  • your Council Tax account reference number (on the front of your bill)
  • the amount you want to pay
  • a credit or debit card
  • a pen to record your transaction number

Standard Council Tax instalments are spread over a 10 month period, due on the fifth of each month from April to January. Payment dates and amounts are on the front of your Council Tax bill.

If you don't have your Council Tax bill, please call 0300 300 8306 and ask us to send you a replacement.

If you don’t have a Council Tax account yet, you’ll need to register for Council Tax before you can make a payment.

Want to check your balance?

You can register to see information about your Council Tax. This takes a few minutes to set up. Once you register you will be sent a letter with details to complete the set up. You can then log on any time to see what your balance is.

You can also use this to tell us if you move house, plus access other information about housing benefits, Council Tax support claims and business rates (non-domestic rates).
