You can also use 'Paypoint', 'Payzone' or 'Quickcards' for cash payments at post offices, banks, newsagents and convenience stores.

Check your bill to find out which other payment methods you can use.

Your council tax bill tells you:

  • how much you have to pay for the year
  • how that amount has been worked out
  • the dates you have to pay

The cost is usually split into 10 monthly payments. Contact your council immediately if you're having trouble paying - they can help you, e.g. by spreading your payments over 12 months instead of 10.

Non-payment penalties

The council can take action to reclaim any debts you owe if you get behind with payments. If you're unable to pay your council tax, contact your local council to see if you are eligible for council tax exemption or reduction.
