Direct Debit is the quickest and easiest way to pay your bill.
You can pay over 10 months (April to January) or 12 months (April to March). You can also choose which date of the month you pay (5th, 10th, 15th or 25th)
You can set up a Direct Debit online. Make sure you have your council reference number (from your bill or invoice) and your bank or building society details.
If you pay by Direct Debit, you can sign up to get your bill by email
Note: you do not need to do anything if you have already set up a Direct Debit, your new bill will list the payment installment amounts and the date they will be taken.
If you want to pay by Direct Debit and the name on your Council Tax bill does not match the name on the bank account from which payments are to be taken, print off a form from this page to complete and return.
We accept Switch/Maestro, Solo, Visa and Delta Debit card payment. You can pay your bill by debit card online - just choose Council Tax from the list.
You need to ask your bank to set this up for you, quoting your account reference number. You will need the Council’s bank details:
If you live outside of the UK and need to pay Council Tax on a property in the Bradford District you will need to quote your account reference number and this IBAN reference number to your bank: GB13NWBK56003600143790.
Please be aware that you may be charged a fee for this transaction by the International Bank you are using. You must pay the fee on top of the payment you are making. If the Council receives a payment that is less than the agreed instalment then you may be subject to recovery action on the outstanding amount. Please ensure that you add any transaction fees to your payment so we receive the correct amount payable.
You can ask to pay weekly or fortnightly, however the payments must not be less than the instalment amount due that month. We will divide up your payments so that you pay the equivalent of a monthly instalment before the due date.
You can ask for a copy of your bill to be sent to you.
