How much is Council Tax?


Council Tax regulations dictate the Council Tax will be payable by 10 monthly instalments if the demand is issued on or before the 30 April of the relevant year.

For a bill issued on or after the 1 May, but before the 1 January the number of instalments will be one less than the whole number of months remaining in the current financial year.

Where the demand is issued between 1 January and 31 March, the Council Tax will be payable in a single instalment.

The table below shows how many instalments you will receive if you receive a bill at a particular time: 

Number of instalments by month demand issued
Month demand was issued Number of instalments
April (or before) 10
May 9
June 8
July 7
August 6
September 5
October 4
November 3
December 2
January 1
February 1
March 1

You can pay your year's council tax in 12 monthly instalments.
