Paying Council Tax in Babergh

You can pay your Council Tax on receipt of the annual bill, or you have the choice of paying in two half yearly instalments or 10 monthly instalments. If you elect to pay in two half yearly instalments, your first instalment is due in April, and the second instalment in October.  Payment for 10 monthly instalments is due on the 1st of the month. You can arrange to pay over 12 months. To set this up please complete a General enquiry form.

If you experience any difficulty making payment it is important that you contact us as soon as possible, please do not wait for a reminder to arrive. If you contact us early before recovery proceedings have commenced we can consider your position and it may be possible to agree other arrangements.

Take the worry out of bill paying and let your bank or building society pay your tax instalments direct to the Council. You can choose to pay by direct debit on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd or 28th of each month.
