If you would like to pay your Council Tax bill by direct debit you can download a Direct Debit Instruction form. Complete the instruction and return it to the freepost address shown on it so we can set up your direct debit, do NOT send it to your bank.
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.
Your Council Tax bill can be paid at any PayPoint outlet or Post Office using a personalised plastic payment-card, provided you already have one. Alternatively you can use your Council Tax bill, or should you receive one, a Council Tax Reminder Notice or Council Tax Final Notice. If you decide to pay this way we should receive your payment on the first day of each month. You should allow at least three working days for your payment to reach us.
If making a payment by this method, using your bank's service, you must quote the Moray Council's bank's sorting code 80-06-66 and bank account number 00111580. Please also ensure you quote your Council Tax account number, as shown on your bill.
