Your council tax pays for essential services such as recycling, street cleaning, education, libraries and social services.
If you have a bank account, the easiest and safest way to pay your council tax is by direct debit. You can sign up now with our simple, secure, online direct debit form. Alternatively, you can pay your bill online now.
All direct debit payers will automatically be entered in a London wide prize draw for a chance to win £25,000. In the past two years, lucky Southwark residents have scooped this prize (terms and conditions apply).
As a council tax payer, you can also register to view your current statement online, whenever you want.
Paying council tax is mandatory, although you may be eligible for discounts, exemptions or council tax reductions.
Keeping council tax increases below inflation rate is one of our fairer future promises to you.
A copy of the published council tax guide for 2013/14 is available online to download.
