Online and automated telephone payments
Making a payment
We accept online payments for: Council Tax, Business Rates, Housing Rent, Housing Benefit Overpayment and Sundry Debtor Invoices via our online payment system, using any of these cards:
An additional fee of 1.5% of the transaction value is payable on all payments made by credit card in respect of Council Tax and Business Rates only. This reflects the bank's charge to the Council for accepting credit card payments. There is no surcharge if you use a debit card.
You can also make payments to our automated telephone payments system by calling 0845 835 0137 (calls to this number will cost 2p per minute plus your normal network charge).
Please make sure you have the reference number(s) of the bill(s) you want to pay, and your credit or debit card to hand.
These systems are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Data stored and transmitted to the Council is certified completely secure, confidential and your details will not be used for any other purpose.
If you are in a public place we strongly advise you to make sure you are not overlooked as you enter your details to prevent them from being misused by somebody else.
