You will be given a receipt which you should keep as a record of your payment. Look out for these logos;
Can I still use my Payment Card?
No. From 1 April 2018 you can no longer pay your Council Tax using a payment card. You can still pay using Pay Point or at a Post Office, but you need to bring your Council Tax bill along so that the cashier can scan the barcode on it to make sure that your payment gets to your account.
