How to pay your Council Tax over the phone

Telephone Payment Line

You can pay your Council Tax by using our automated telephone payment line on 01553 616671.

What you'll need to pay:

  • your Council Tax account number (you can find this on your bill)
  • a valid debit or credit card

Once you've paid you will hear a reference number that is unique to your payment. This number will act as your receipt.

We'll process your payment by the end of the working day. If the payment is made before 4:45pm it will show on your account the next working day.

Pay by Direct Debit

You can choose to pay by Direct Debit. It’s a quick and easy payment method.

You can download our Direct Debit form on our Direct Debit page. Or please call us on 01553 616200 to set it up.
