Payments during Coronavirus disruption

If you usually pay your council bills face-to-face, there are lots of options while the Civic Centre is closed. You can pay your council tax, business rates, rent and other invoices from the council, at a PayPoint. If you do not have the paperwork to make your payment you can contact the council at customer.care@ashford.gov.uk or by calling 01233 331111 for your reference information.

Visit the PayPoint website and enter your postcode to find your closest PayPoint accepting cash on behalf of Ashford Borough Council, or pop into your high street bank.

Please do not send cash in the post, it is not secure and uninsured.

You can also pay by card on our website or over the phone. Please continue reading this page to find out these methods.
