Pay your Council Tax

There are several ways to pay

Direct Debit

This is the easiest way to pay and means your bill will always be paid on time. Over 70,000 people in Enfield pay their Council Tax monthly by Direct Debit. You just pick a payment date that suits you (1, 11, 21 or 28 of the month) and your payment is automatically debited from your account each month.

Pay Council Tax by Direct Debit

However, if you fall behind on Council Tax payments you may lose the right to pay by instalments and have to pay the annual balance in full.

Direct Debit payments are protected by a guarantee and can be cancelled at any time if you would like to pay in a different way.

Single payments
