Information about our Council Tax Direct Debit Prize Draw
Paying your Council Tax by Direct Debit is free to set up and means you don’t need to remember to pay your bill each month. We’ll take the payment from your account automatically.
You can choose to pay on the 5th, 15th or 28th of the month and you can choose to pay in either 10 or 12 monthly instalments.
*If you’re already signed up for Direct Debit, don’t worry, we’ll enter you into the prize draw. You do not need to sign up again.
Why pay by Direct Debit?
- Paying by Direct Debit means you’re less likely to fall into arrears.
- It’s one less thing to remember to do – your bill is paid automatically each month.
- Payment by Direct Debit reduces the cost of collecting Council Tax to the council, so these savings can be spent on other services.
