Making Licensing Payments
The Licensing Unit can take payments for applications.
Types of Payment
Debit card and credit card payments by telephone
The Licensing Unit can process your payment instantly. When
payments are accepted, it can issue you with a receipt via email or
send you confirmation in the post. Please have your payment card
ready for a member of the unit to enter on the computer system.
They will ensure that your card details and personal information
remain secure and confidential when using the system.
Please do not leave your payment details on voicemail.
Cheques payable to Medway Council
The Licensing Unit can take cheques. All cheques are then
forwarded to the council's cashiers for processing. Once this is
done, a receipt is sent to licensing which is then sent out to the
applicant. This can take some time, so please be patient. In some
cases the licensing team is unable to complete the
processing of your application until the payment is confirmed.
We are unable to take cash payments in licensing.
You can make payments by cash by visiting the council contact
One or Strood Contact Point using the automated
till. Payments must be made using an appropriate payment slip
or other information to identify the payment. Please
note that their is a delay in making cash payments as all documents
goes to our cashiers department for processing of the payment and
then forwarded to licensing unit.
