Pay a bill, rent, fine, penalty or invoice

Pay council housing rent, Council Tax, Business Rates, parking and bus lane fines and invoices.

Pay by Direct Debit

Save time with a safe, worry free payment and relax knowing the bill will be paid. You can pay the following by Direct Debit:


One-off payment

Pay a single payment.

  • Debit Card  - council housing rent, Council Tax, Business Rates
  • Debit or Credit Card - all other payments


Pay a single payment and choose "SCC Invoice" and then enter a customer reference number. 

This is the customer reference number from the top right hand of the invoice followed by the invoice number (with no gap in between).


Pay regularly

Register and pay.  You will need:

  • to choose a password

  • a memorable security question/answer

  • your debit card

  • the reference number of the bill (for example Council Tax account number)

  • something to note down your customer reference number for each bill

You can make a partial payment of any invoices.


When payments show as paid

If you pay for your Council Tax, Business Rates, Penalty Charge Notices, Housing Benefit Invoice, or another invoice from us, your payment will be credited to your account 2 days later (your rent account may take a little longer).


Council housing rent

Check your rent balance.
