Last year the borough collected its highest ever total for Council Tax

Bexley Council is urging people to pay their Council Tax online via direct debits, as well as viewing bills online, rather than using paper.

30 per cent of the borough’s Council Tax payers are using older methods instead of online, with the option to pay via direct debit on the 1st, 15th or 25th of each month.

Over the last year, Bexley Council collected the highest ever amount of Council Tax.

Don Massey, cabinet member for finance and corporate services said: “We updated our webpages and reviewed our processes to improve the experience for residents and cut our costs.

“The result has been a higher collection rate, lower costs, less paper and happier customers.”
