Sign up for council tax ebilling

Reduce your paper bills by choosing to get your council tax bill and other communications from our revenues and benefits team electronically.

All you need to register is your name, address and email address. (You must be a person who is named on the bill).

What happens next?

Once you've completed the registration process, we will send you a letter to confirm you have registered for electronic communications. You need do nothing more if all information is correct.

If there is a mistake, or you have changed your mind, please contact us as soon as possible.

Your future council tax bills will then be sent to you by email, along with the other information which is sent with your bill. If we need to contact you for any reason, we will email you instead of contacting you by post.

Use of personal information

We will only use the information collected when you sign up for ecommunications for the reasons stated on this page. In line with Data Protection law, we may use the information you give us to prevent or detect fraud or other crimes. We may also share it with other council services or public organisations if they need it to carry out their duties. Your personal details will not be passed to any other organisation or third party.

Help to register

If you need help to register, please contact us.


If, in the future, you want to stop receiving ecommunications then you must contact us.
