As part of a national campaign, Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are encouraging as many people as possible to pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit. And in doing so, everyone who signs up before 30 September will be entered into a prize draw with a chance of winning £5,000!
Direct Debit is the most convenient way to spread the cost across the year and gives you peace of mind that your bills will be paid on time, every time, with no missed payments. It really is the perfect way to stay in control of your bills.
Set up a Direct Debit with your bank and payments will be made automatically, meaning you will never forget to make that vital payment. But don’t worry, you will stay in control as a Direct Debit can be cancelled at any time. What’s more, everything is protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee – so you can be confident that you will get a full refund from your bank in the unlikely event that an error is made in the payment of your Direct Debit.
Cllr Geoff Holdcroft, Suffolk Coastal’s Cabinet Member for Resources said:
“We want as many people as possible to sign up as there is simply no easier and more convenient way to pay your Council Tax. In addition the chance of winning £5,000 is a really great incentive.”
Cllr Mike Barnard, Waveney’s Cabinet Member for Resources said:
“Not only is Direct Debit convenient for customers, it also helps councils protect public money by ensuring bills are paid on time and it reduces the time it takes for us to deal with payments which frees up resources for other vital services. It’s a win-win.”
Customers who already pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit will automatically be entered into the prize draw.
