Pay your bill online

Is this your first payment? - things you will need

You will need your debit or credit card details and the first eight digits of your council tax reference number (this begins with a 5 or a 6 and is found at the top of your bill).

To use the service you will need one of the following debit/credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, Delta, Switch, Maestro or Visa Electron.

Once your credit card details have been submitted to us and your credit card company have approved the payment, the payment will be processed within one working day.

If you are in a public place we strongly advise you make sure you are not overlooked as you enter your details to prevent them being misused by somebody else.

Exceptions when you cannot pay

If the reference number is not recognised you will be unable to proceed with the payment. If you think the reference number has been incorrectly entered, please re-enter.

You can't pay if:

  • you have paid your council tax in full
  • the council feels that this isn't the best way of making a payment
