Other ways to pay

If you don't want to pay online why not use one of our other quick and easy methods of payment.

Post Office and other places to make payments 

You can also make payments at Post Offices and other locations such as shops and garage using a system called Allpay.  You can pay for council tax, South Kesteven District Council invoices, overpaid housing benefit and rent. Post offices accept cash, cheque and debit cards. Stores with Epays and PayPoints will also accept cash.

You can search for Allpay outlets near you.

In order to use Allpay you will need to have a swipe card issued to you by the council. If you require a card please call customer services on 01476 406080 or call in at one of our offices.  The cards are provided in different colours to make payments for different account types. The council tax card is blue, housing benefit repayment is pink and the rent is yellow.

Invoices and litter fines are barcoded so just take them to any Post Office or PayPoint and the bar code will be scanned to identify your invoice.

You are not charged for paying at Post Offices or PayPoints.
