Council Tax - how to pay

Payment of your Council Tax can be made in a number of different ways:

By Direct Debit
Payment of Direct Debit can be made by 10 instalments. You have a choice of four different payment dates: 1st, 10th, 18th, or 25th of the month. Direct Debit is the method preferred by over 86% of the residents in the district as it is the cheapest and the most cost efficient way to pay. In addition to the Direct Debit Guarantee, Chiltern District Council also guarantee that in the unlikely event of a mistake occurring, they will promptly reimburse you for any direct costs attributable to the error.
