Pay at a bank

You can pay at any bank using the payment slip at the bottom of your invoice. Some banks make a charge for this service. Allow five working days for your payment to reach us.

Standing orders and bank transfers

Payments can be made by bank transfer and standing order. You'll need to contact your bank and quote your 8 digit invoice number, and give them our bank details.

If you wish to pay your invoices by standing order, ensure that these payments are made every 4 weeks, and not monthly.

If you don’t pay your invoice

If payment is not received on time, further action may be taken. To avoid this, contact the General Income Section.

To recover payment for adult social care invoices, further action can include, but is not limited to:

  • county court judgement: this could severely affect your credit rating and may affect your ability to get loans, including mortgages, credit cards, store cards and increases in credit limits, which will result in further costs to you
  • third party debt order: this prevents you from taking money out of your bank/building society account until the debt has been settled
  • charging order: this prevents you from selling assets such as property, investments or land, without paying what is owed; we can apply to the court for an order allowing the forced sale of property once a charging order is agreed
