Pay your council tax

You can pay in many ways including online, Direct Debit, by phone or swipe card

Pay by Direct Debit

Paying by Direct Debit is the easiest and most secure way of paying your council tax bill. You can choose to pay on the 1st, 15th or 30th of each month, over 10 or 12 instalments dependant on the number of months remaining in the financial year.

You can be confident that High Peak Borough Council will operate your Direct Debit under the terms of the Guarantee.

To apply for a Direct Debit you will need to create or log in to a High Peak online account. If you don't have one already, click the button below and register. If you already have an account with us you can also log in here.

If you already have an account you can login at anytime to check your information and make changes.

Changing your direct debit information

If you need to change your bank details, instalment dates or payment frequency, you can submit a Council Tax - change your payment method from within your online account.


Paying online is easy and secure.  We accept all major credit and bank cards.

You will need your council tax account number which you will find on your council tax bill.
