Paying your Council Tax
There are several methods by which you can pay your Council Tax.
You can pay your Council Tax in monthly instalments, or in a lump sum when you get your bill. We will assume you will pay monthly unless you tell us otherwise.
If you wish to use our Automated Payment Line to make a payment please dial 0300 456 0511
If you have questions about paying your Council Tax, call 01772 625 625 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
At your local Post Office
If you wish to pay at any Post Office or Pay Point location you will need the barcode that is included on the front of any correspondence.
If you wish to pay by BACS transfer, the council's bank details are as follows:
Barclays Bank plc.
Account Name: South Ribble Collection A/C
Sort Code: 20-69-93
Account No: 73548465
If none of the other payment methods mentioned above are suitable for you, you can also pay by cheque by posting your remittance to:
South Ribble Borough Council
Please write your account reference on the back of your cheque. If you require a receipt, you must enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
If you find yourself unable to make the payments shown on your bill you must contact us immediately.
If you do not make contact and simply fail to pay, you will receive a reminder a few days after the payment was due. In most circumstances we will be able to make a special arrangement with you. However, the longer you leave contacting us, the more difficult it will be to make an arrangement and the payments under the arrangement will be higher.
Unless you have opted to pay by direct debit, your instalments will probably be due on the first day of the month.
If you need debt advice, you can get independent advice in South Ribble from both the Citizens' Advice Bureau and the Lancashire County Council Welfare Rights Service.
