Please note that payments made via the Internet, bill pay or Electronic Banking may take 3 to 5 working days to reach us.

Number of Payments

For demands issued in March, each year Council tax is normally payable over 10 payments starting in April, many people prefer this as it means they have two months when a payment is not required.

However, you can choose to pay over 12 months (April to March). To arrange this please contact us and we will arrange this for the next annual demand.

If you have just moved into the area, the number of payments will be dependant on the number of months remaining in the financial year.
