Council Tax Instalments

The easiest way to pay your Council Tax is by Direct Debit. You can select one of five payment dates to suit you and elect to pay over 10 or 12 months in a year. You can also pay weekly or fortnightly. More information on how to set up a Direct Debit.

If not paying by Direct Debit the default is pay over a maximum of 10 months in the tax year. However, you can choose to pay over a maximum of 12 months during the year to help spread the payments. To do this please email us at counciltax@nottinghamcity.gov.uk stating in the heading ‘Request for maximum instalments.'
