Important information for credit card users

Under EU directive, from 13 January 2018 the Council cannot charge a surcharge for payment by credit card. However, due to a software issue we are unable to make the necessary changes to prevent the surcharge from being taken at present on council tax, non-domestic rates, housing rents, penalty charge notices and housing benefit overpayments. Therefore, we would ask that you do not make a payment of these bills by credit card. If the payment is urgent, please contact the department that has sent you the bill to discuss. We apologise for any inconvenience. The system is being revised and you should be able to pay these bills by credit card soon without any surcharge.
