Council Tax - How Do I Pay?

You can pay your Council tax by using one of the following payment-methods:

Direct Debit

If you want to pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit all you need is a Bank or Building Society account from which direct debit payments can be made.

Payment by direct debit means you do not have to remember to pay your instalment on time as it is automatically deducted from your bank or building society account. If you decide to use this method of payment, we will write and confirm to you the amount you will pay and the dates these payments will be deducted from your account.

There is a wide choice of dates on which payment by direct debit may be made . We can collect your instalment:

  • over ten months on the fifth or fifteenth or twenty-fifth day of the month, April to January, inclusive;
  • over twelve months on the fifth or fifteenth or twenty-fifth day of the month, April to March, inclusive;
  • weekly, on each Friday;
  • fortnightly, on alternating Thursdays;
  • quarterly, on 30th May; 30th August, 30th November and 28th February;
  • six-monthly, on 30th May and 30th November;
  • annually, on 30th June.

Standing Order

You can also pay by Standing Order, to do this you must tell your bank the correct amount to pay on the due date. The amount paid by Standing Order must be revised by you each time the amount of Council Tax payable by you changes (e.g. at the start of each new financial year).

If you would like more information on payment by standing order, please contact Moray Council's Customer Contact Team or visit your local Council Access Point. Alternatively you can download a standing order mandate here
