Wondering how to pay your municipal accounts during the holiday season? For your convenience, the City of Johannesburg (CoJ) is offering a variety of options, including:

1. Direct deposits to Standard Bank:

– CoJ accounts can be paid by making a direct deposit over the counter at any Standard Bank, country-wide.

– Just insert the unique beneficiary number allocated to the CoJ in the account number field (AA45).

– To ensure your deposit is allocated to the correct municipal account, you should use your nine digit municipal account number in the depositor’s name or reference field.

– You need to ensure that all over-the-counter payments are accompanied by your account.

2. Internet payments:

– Delete the old CoJ beneficiary (Absa account number 4054398463) and add the pre-loaded beneficiary titled City of Johannesburg Company Beneficiary.

– You should use your nine digit municipal account number as a reference when making payments.

3. ATM, telephone banking and other:

– If you are a customer making payments via stop order, telephone banking or the ATM, you have to change the banking details at your own bank. If you are using a debit order, no changes need to be made.

4. Third party payments:

– Third party payments can be made at Pick n Pay, Checkers and Woolworths.

– You need to have your account with you to use this method.

– Customers have to remember that payments made at these stores may take up to five days to register on the City’s system.
