Pay Council Tax: With your barcode

Where can I find my barcode?

On the front of your bill is a barcode which can be scanned and used to make payments at any Post Office or PayPoint outlet free of charge. The barcode cannot be used at banks. 

How does it work?

This barcode includes details of your payment reference number and replaces payment cards. Your existing payment card can still be used but will not be replaced.

  • Hand the bill with barcode and your payment to the cashier, telling them how much you want to pay.
  • The cashier will process your payment and give you back bill and barcode back with a paper receipt. Keep the receipt as proof of payment.

When should I pay?

The Post Office or PayPoint are not our agents. You should make sure that you pay at least seven days before the payment is due to make sure your payment reaches us in time.

How much should I pay?

Your Council Tax bill shows the instalment amounts and the dates on which you should pay them.

If you lose your barcode or have any queries about using it please contact us.
