Council Tax scams warning: fraudsters pretending to be from the council, Valuation Office Agency and GOV.UK are calling, texting and emailing people. If you are asked for your bank details, told to pay a fee or sent a link to claim a refund it is probably a scam. We will not ask you to pay a fee for a refund, or for your bank details.
Council Tax Payments
Paying by instalments
Your council tax instalments are due on the first of every month from April to January. Please ensure your payments reach us before the due date. This will help you avoid falling into arrears and losing the right to pay by instalments.
How to pay over 12 months
The option to pay over 12 months is only available from April until the following March. If you have recently received a bill for council tax, you can still apply but we will only be able to extend your instalment plan until March.
You can pay your Council Tax on either the 1st, 15th or 25th of the month. Find out more about Direct Debit.
