Why have I received a final notice and how do I pay?

If you receive a final notice, you will need to pay the full amount owed for the whole year, unless you choose to set up a direct debit. You need to do this within 7 days of the date on your final notice to avoid further recovery action.

You need to make sure that you pay your bill in plenty of time, as payments take a minimum of 24 hours to reach your council tax account.

How to pay

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.

Other ways to pay

Direct Debit

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 dependant on the number of months remaining in the financial year.
