You can set up a Direct Debit to make payments each month. This is the easiest way to pay and means your bill will be paid correctly and on time. You just pick a payment date that suits you (1st, 11th, 21st or 28th of the month) and your payment is automatically debited from your account each month.
If you’ve received a bill, you can set up your Direct Debit using the online form below.
