Pay by Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the easiest way to pay your Council Tax. It is simple, quick, safe and you don't need to remember to pay.

You can spread your payments over ten monthly instalments, running from April to January. There is a choice of three payment dates on 1, 15 or 23 of each month.

To set up a Direct Debit for your Council Tax payment, use the online form below.

There is an option to arrange payment over 12 months rather than ten. This will slightly reduce the amount paid for each instalment, but the annual total will remain the same. To arrange this, email counciltax@nfdc.gov.uk.
