Direct Debit for Council Tax, Business Rates and Housing Benefit Overpayments

Payment by Direct Debit is the most cost-effective and secure way for you to pay your Council Tax or Business Rates. It is also by far the cheapest method of payment for the council to administer, allowing us to make better use of public funds.

All you need is a bank or building society account, your Council Tax or Business Rate payments will automatically be taken from your account without you having to worry about dealing with it yourself. No more trips to the high street and having to queue to pay!

You can be reassured in the knowledge that every Direct Debit is protected by three main safeguards:

  • An immediate money back guarantee from the bank or building society if an error is made.
  • Advance notice from us should there be any change to the date or the amount of the Direct Debit.
  • The right to cancel at any time.
