Council tax payments
Your yearly council tax charge is normally payable in 10 monthly instalments due on the 1st of the month from April to January. There are a number of different ways to pay your council tax with direct debit being the most efficient.

Pay in person
At our Town Centre Shop in Witney between 9am - 5pm daily. Please note that we are unable to accept post-dated cheques.
Post office or Payzone
You can pay your council tax at any Post Office or Payzone using a swipe card. Please note if you pay by this method your payment will take a number of days to reach your account. For more information about Payzone or to find your nearest point please visit the Payzone website.
You can set up a standing order at your bank using the Council's bank details.
Please make sure that your council tax payments are received by the due date to avoid getting a reminder. A maximum of 2 reminders are sent in any one year after which the instalment facility is cancelled and the whole years charge becomes payable.
Non payment of council tax
If you don't pay your charge the Council is legally obliged to follow statutory procedures to recover the debt.
