Ways to pay your Council Tax

There are lots of different ways you can pay your Council Tax each month but we recommend you do it via Direct Debit or online.

Before you set up your preferred way to pay, we recommend you have your Doncaster Council reference number ready.

Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the most convenient way to pay your Council Tax and is easy to set up by using our Direct Debit on line form. You can sign up at any time. 

Set up Direct Debit

You can complete a Direct Debit instruction to pay your Council Tax online today. You should also use this link and complete the instruction if your Direct Debit details have changed.

Please note: if you have arrears and have received a court summons you will need to contact us on 01302 734454 (select option 1 for Council Tax) and make an arrangement to pay. Once payment terms have been agreed taking into account your income and expenditure a member of staff can set up a Direct Debit with you.

Please note that our postal address is: Revenues, Doncaster Council, Civic Office, Waterdale, Doncaster, DN1 3BU.

Online via debit or credit card payment


Call 0333 2000 324 to pay by debit or credit card. The line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Post Office

The bar code on any letter sent to you allows you to pay by cash or debit card free of charge at any post office. You can find your nearest branch by using the Post Office branch finder.


The bar code on any letter sent to you allows you to pay cash at any outlet where you see the Paypoint sign. There is no cost for using this service.

Bank or building society

You can use internet or telephone banking by quoting:

  • Bank account name: Doncaster MBC
  • sort code: 30-92-68

As payments can take longer using this method, make sure they are paid in advance of your specified instalment date.


Make your cheque payable to Doncaster Council and include your Doncaster Council reference on the reverse of the cheque. Payments can take longer using this method, so please make sure they are paid in plenty of time before your instalment date.

Changing method of payment

If you change your method of payment you will receive new instructions telling you when and how to pay.
