Make a payment

Is paying online safe?

Yes. Your transaction will take place within a secure payment system, which means the transaction is encrypted between your PC and the council's payment service. This uses a technology called Secure Socket Layer (SSL), a standard supported by major internet browsers. All your personal and card details are protected by encryption, when transmitted over the internet. Your card details are not stored by the Council, they are maintained by the Council's professional payment partner.

When you have finished entering your card details, and confirm you want to continue with the payment, there will be a short delay while your card details are validated. If your payment is successful, a receipt will be displayed which contains a transaction reference number. Please make a note of this number or use the print facility in case you need to contact us about your payment.


We accept most credit and debit cards with the exception of American Express, Diners' Club or JCB.


You can pay your council tax, business rates (NNDR) and invoices online using your debit or credit card.
