Why have I received a reminder and how do I pay?

Payments are recorded on your account when we actually receive the money. You need to make sure that you pay your bill in plenty of time, as payments often take a minimum of 24 hours to reach your council tax account.

You need to bring your account up to date within 7 days of the date on your reminder notice to avoid further recovery action.

How to bring your account up to date

To bring your account up to date, you can make a payment online

You can also make payment using all major credit and debit cards by phoning our 24 hour automated payment line 0345 605 3016.

Direct Debits

To avoid further recovery action in the future, you might wish to set up a Direct Debit. Paying by Direct Debit is the easiest and most secure way of paying your council tax bill. You can choose to pay on the 1st, 15th or 30th of each month, over 10 or 12 instalments.
