Online Payments

How to make a Payment online

You can pay your Council Tax, Business Rates (NNDR), or General Debts (where you have a sundry debtor account number from an invoice) over the internet.

To make an online payment you need a valid credit or debit card and an account reference.

Please note a charge will be made for payments made with a credit card.


Account references

Business Rates - Enter your Business Rates account number which appears on your bill as a 7 digit reference starting with a 5 or 6.

Council Tax - Enter your Council Tax account number which appears on your bill as an 8 digit reference which starts with a 1. If your number ends in an X, please enter the X in upper case (capital X).

Sundry Debtors - Enter your Sundry Debtor account number which appears on your invoice as a 10 character reference number which starts with "sdebt" followed by 5 digits. (The "sdebt" must be in lower case.)
