Paying by Direct Debit can bring joy at Christmas

Published Tuesday, 18th December 2018

Every December Melton Borough Council run a prize draw, picking a name at random from the list of Council Tax and rent payers who pay by Direct Debit.

This year’s winners are: Mr Parker & Mrs Mistri-Parker from Ab Kettleby and Mr & Mrs Steele from Melton Mowbray.

Paying your Council Tax or rent by Direct Debit is the most cost effective and efficient way to pay and those people that don’t pay using this method are missing out of the chance to win £100.

Chair of Melton Borough Council’s People Committee, Cllr Alan Pearson said ‘Direct Debit is the most convenient way for Council Tax and rent to be paid. Not only is it the cheapest and most cost effective way for the Council, it is also the easiest way for residents to pay. You can also choose one of four payment days to suit you and you don’t have to do anything else, it’s automatic. We would encourage everyone to use this method of payment.’

Paying by Direct Debit is very easy and convenient. If you wish to pay by Direct Debit or have any queries regarding your bill, please contact the customer service centre on: 01664 502502.
