Council Tax payments are normally due on or before the 1st day of each month from April to January each year. If you wish to pay on another date (choose from 1st, 10th, 18th or 25th of each month), please complete our online form. You can also choose to spread your payments over 10 or 12 monthly instalments.
Payments received anytime after the due date of each month will result in you being in arrears and you may receive a reminder notice. The best way to avoid this is to sign up to pay by Direct Debit.
