Payments - How and Where
Council tax is charged on a yearly basis from 1 April to 31 March.
It can be paid in two ways:
- in 10 monthly instalments starting in April and ending in January with no instalments in February or March, or
- as 12 monthly instalments if you pay by direct debit
If you currently pay your Council Tax by direct debit and would like to spread your instalments through to March 2013 then please contact us.
If however you would like to begin paying your Council Tax by direct debit and spread your instalments through to March 2013 please complete the direct debit mandate form and return to us.
Please note that if you have already made some payments of Council Tax on your 2012-13 account, the balance will be divided by the remaining instalments left available in the year. If you would like to know what your instalments will be please contact us.
