When to pay your Council Tax

Payment dates

There is the choice of three payment dates, 5th, 15th and 25th of each month. 


Council Tax bills can be split into either:

  • 10 monthly instalments from April to the following January 
  • 12 monthly instalments, from April to March
  • 2 half year instalments in April and October
  • 1 annual payment in April

If we send you a bill in the middle of a financial year, it will have the amount due spread over the number of instalments remaining for the year.

The dates of your payments and the amounts due are shown on your Council Tax bill.
