How to pay

Online payments

Pay your council tax online via our e-payments website.

Direct debit

Paying your bill monthly by direct debit is convenient, simple, safer and cheaper for us. You can either pay in monthly instalments or twice yearly.

If you pay in monthly instalments, you can pay on the 1st, 7th or 14th of the month. Either complete the online direct debit form, print out the direct debit form (PDF) and post it back, fill in the direct debit form (Word) and email it or call the Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre with your bank details to hand. If you want to pay twice yearly, the money will be taken from your account on 7 April and 7 September. If you change your bank account details, let us know. If you want to cancel your direct debit, tell your bank, then contact us.

Credit or debit card

Pay by credit or debit card over the phone using our 24 hour payment hotline by ringing 0115 914 8533 or in person at the Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre, Rectory Road, West Bridgford, NG2 6BU. 

By post

Post your payment to the Civic Centre, Pavilion Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 5FE. Cheques or postal orders should be crossed and made payable to ‘Rushcliffe Borough Council’, quoting your billing number on the back. Please note that we cannot accept post dated cheques. Do not send cash through the post.

Cash payments

The Borough Council has gone cashless, so take your bill to any Post Office or Allpay outlet to make a payment using the barcode on your council tax bill.


From 1 April 2013, council tax payers have the right to pay council tax over 12 monthly instalments. The default scheme remains at 10 instalments, but anyone can contact us to request payments by 12 instalments.
