Telephone Payments

The District Council has made paying by credit or debit card quick and easy with the launch of its new automated telephone payment service.

This means local residents and businesses can now pay a selection of council bills securely by card at their convenience from a landline or mobile phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Using the service is quick and easy, call 01594 810000 and select option 1 on the telephone keypad. People can pay their council tax, non-domestic rates, benefit overpayments and sundry invoices but will need to ensure they have their account reference number or an invoice number and a valid debit or credit card.
Most major debit and credit cards are accepted, except Diners Card or American Express. A service charge of 1.6% applies to all payments made by credit card. There is no charge for payments made by debit card.
