Pay your Council Tax

The easiest way to pay your Council Tax is by Direct Debit, but you can also pay online.

Council Tax can normally be paid in ten monthly instalments from 1 April, or as shown on your bill. Payments are due on or before the 1st of each month.

You can set up a Direct Debit for your Council Tax online. We'll give you at least 10 days notice before we take the first payment. If you prefer, you can also call us to set this up or complete a paper application form.

If you have a Council Tax online account you can make payments and view your statement 24 hours a day. In the future we are planning to send out bills by email. Why not register for an online account now? You'll just need your eight digit Council Tax account number.

Other ways to pay

Internet or phone banking

Please quote your Council Tax account number shown on your bill.

You'll also need the following details:

Sort code: 30-80-12
Bank name: Lloyds Bank
Account name: Runnymede Borough Council
Account number: 11208060


You can pay using a credit or debit card, 24 hours a day on 01932 425030 / 425031.

You'll be charged a transaction fee if paying by credit card, but there's no fee for debit card payments.

You would then have to pay the balance owed for the remainder of the year at once.
