The Easy Way - By Direct Debit
You give one instruction to your bank or building Society. They then ensure that the appropriate amount is transferred automatically from your account to the Council's when it is due. You will be notified in advance of the payments and their due dates. You will be able to query a payment should you feel it is wrong, or stop it altogether. You can obtain a refund if ever an error is made on your account.
Other important advantages are:
- No cheques to write or letters to post
- No queueing
- Your bank or building society does all the work - but you stay in control
- The option to pay on 1st, 8th or 22nd of each month. Non direct debit instalments are due on 1st of each month and failure to pay on or before the 1st may result in recovery action.
