Paying your council tax

Your council tax

Direct debit is the fastest and easiest way to pay your council tax bill.

If you have recently moved to a new home in Thurrock, you will need to tell us you've moved before you can make your first payment.

Set up a direct debit

A direct debit is simple to set up and helps you because:

  • you stay in control and have a money back guarantee
  • it saves you time and money – no more queues, cheques or stamps
  • payments are made automatically and payment dates will not be missed
  • the payment leaves your bank account on the same date each month so you never have to remember to pay

You can set up a direct debit for your council tax by logging-in to our My Account services. You can create an account if you don't already have one.
