Use this form to apply to pay your council tax by direct debit. You will need your council tax reference number and details of your bank or building society account.

Before you can set up a direct debit we need to carry out a couple of checks.

If you cannot answer 'Yes' to both of these questions you will need to complete a paper direct debit instruction.



Because you indicated that either you didn't have a UK bank / building society account or that you were not authorised as a sole signatory for debits you cannot set up a direct debit online. Please download the Direct Debit Instruction Form, print it off, fill it in and return to us. To print out a paper direct debit application form please click here. (Opens a new window).
