Did you know you can make payments to the Council much more easily using direct debit?

Setting up a direct debit will take away the hassle of phoning up or filling in and posting a cheque. You can find out how to pay us via direct debit using the links below.

To set up:

Babergh District Council Tax direct debit

Mid Suffolk District Council Tax direct debit

 

Babergh District Council Business Rates direct debit 

Mid Suffolk District Council Business Rates direct debit

 

Babergh or Mid Suffolk District Council Rent direct debit

Babergh or Mid Suffolk District Council Housing Benefit Overpayment Repayment direct debit

 

Important notice for those still using cheques for payments:

Very soon we will be switching to a new, faster cheque processing and clearing system.

Please note the following important changes:

From October onwards, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils will process customer cheques faster than before.

For customers, this means cheques sent to us will debit your bank account quicker than they will have done previously.

Once a cheque has arrived at our central operating office in Endeavour House, 8 Russell Rd, Ipswich IP1 2BX on any given working day, the minimum amount of time the cheque will debit your bank account is by the end of the next working day.

Due to the variable nature of when cheques arrive to be processed, there is not a 100% guarantee your cheque will be processed this quickly, however, please ensure that you have sufficient cleared funds in your bank account when you write your cheque.
