How to pay your Council Tax bill?
This sections tells you about the different methods you can use to pay your council tax bill.
By far the best way to pay Council Tax is by Direct Debit and now you don't even need to complete any forms to do so. Just call (0115) 915 4851 and have your bank details ready. If you prefer, you can print a mandate which can be returned in the post. Once we have received your instruction, we will make arrangements with your bank and send you a revised bill. The first monthly instalment under the Direct Debit plan will always be at least 10 working days after we send you the bill.
Accounts can be paid online via the Nottingham City Council 24-hour secure Internet payments service. You may make a variety of payments using this secure site with most major credit or debit cards. Click here to pay your Council Tax on-line.
If a Bar Code is printed on your bill, payment may be made at any Post Office in cash, by cheque or with a Debit Card. There is no charge for this service.
If a Bar Code is printed on your bill, payment may be made in cash at any outlet displaying the PayPoint logo. There is no charge for this service. Details of your local outlet can be found at the PayPoint website.
You may pay your Council Tax in person at any Housing Office.
