Direct Debit

Setting up a Direct Debit arrangement for your Council Tax or Business Rates payments couldn't be easier.

You can set up your Direct Debit securely now by using our self service facility.

Sign-up for Direct Debit

Payments can be made on 1st, 11th or 21st of the month so you can choose the date most convenient to you.

All the normal Direct Debit safeguards and guarantees apply. Changes in the amount, date or frequency will only be made by giving you at least 14 working days notice before your account is debited. In the event of any error, you can have an immediate refund from your bank or building society. You have the right to cancel a Direct Debit instruction at any time simply by writing to your bank or building society, with a copy to us.

In order to set up your Direct Debit instruction, you will need to give us your bank or building society name and account number, sort code and branch address (you can find all these details in your cheque book or on your bank statement).

  • If this is your own personal account continue with the set up procedure.
  • If you prefer to set up your Direct Debit over the telephone, please ring 01895 837500.
  • If you are not the account holder, a paper Direct Debit instruction will be sent for completion.

Alternatively you can print off your on-screen Direct Debit instruction and post it to us at:
