The only true cost effective and convenient method of payment is Direct Debit.
With Direct Debit you are guaranteed an immediate refund in the unlikely event of an error ever occurring.
You are free to cancel your instruction at any time.
You can pay at a later date, each month, than by other methods. From 1st April 2012 the dates available will be as follows: 1st (10 months) 1st (12 months) 15th (10 months) and 30th (10 months). Furthermore, paying by Direct Debit reduces the Councils costs and the savings can be passed on in the form of better services.
Direct Debit is convenient because you do not need to remember to pay your instalments each month, we do that.
You will be informed of any changes to the instalments at least 14 days before the revised instalment is due.
