Important note: You will need to accept cookies to make a payment.

Pay by instalments using Direct Debit

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.

Pay by phone

Call our automated telephone payment service on 0300 4560520.

Select option 1 for Council Tax. You will be asked to quote your Council Tax account number shown on the front of your bill.

Online or telephone banking

You can make a payment using online banking or telephone banking. Quote Haringey's bank account number 43399710, sort code 20-98-47, account name London Borough of Haringey and your full Council Tax account number shown on the front of your bill.

If you have set up a standing order using the previous sort code it will remain in place for the rest of the financial year - you do not need to amend it until you receive your new bill.
