Pay Council Tax: By Direct Debit

It’s easy and safe to set up or change a Direct Debit using our My Council Tax Online system. You will need the following items before you start:

  • Your Council Tax reference number.
  • Your bank account number and sort code (you must be the holder of the bank account and authorised to set up a Direct Debit).

Set up or change a Direct Debit

To set up or change a Direct Debit, please access the 'Council Tax Notifications' facility in My Council Tax Online via the button below, and create a new notification by using the ‘Start’ button under the ‘New Notification’ heading. You will need to accept pop-ups on this site. Do not change your Direct Debit within seven days of your existing payment date, otherwise two payments may be taken in the same month.
