We offer a range of payment methods to ensure you can pay your bills and invoices in the way that is easiest and most convenient for you.
You may need to make a payment for:
Ways to pay
Direct debit is the most efficient and cost effective way to pay your Council Tax or rent. You avoid queues, cheques, postal orders, postage and visits to Council offices. You also have the option to choose a payment date.
If you wish to pay by Direct Debit you will need to complete a Direct Debit request form. This form is enclosed with your bill.
If you pay by standing order it is your responsibility to put the arrangements in place. You must complete a new mandate every time the amount changes and you must notify your bank.
Free of charge via credit or debit card, you can pay for a number of Council Services securely online.

Cash will no longer be a payment option

PayPoints are handily located in local newsagents and supermarkets so that you can make your payment at the same time as buying your groceries or newspapers.

To pay at your local PayPoint, you will need to be issued with a new type of payment card.
All existing payment card holders (as at February 2014) will automatically be issued with the new type card. However, customer requests for either a replacement card (lost/stolen)or brand new card should telephone 01563 554400 or e-mail email@example.com.
