On this page, find out about Council Tax bills, how to request a copy of your bill and switching to e-billing.

Council Tax bills are issued every March, or when you become liable for paying Council Tax at a property.

Your Council Tax bill will show:

  • who in the household is liable to pay
  • how much is owed
  • the instalment amounts and dates - read more about your Council Tax instalment options
  • any relevant discounts or exemptions
  • how the bill is calculated.

Council Tax bills are issued annually and only one is sent to a property regardless of how many people live there.

We’ll only send another one if your bill has been adjusted or you’ve requested another copy of it.

How to request a copy of your bill

If you need a copy of your Council Tax bill:

e-billing

You can switch to paperless billing if you’d prefer to receive electronic bills instead of paper copies.

With e-billing:

  • it saves paper, so it’s better for the environment
  • it helps us reduce our printing and postage costs, helping to keep council tax down
  • you can download or print the bill if you need it for proof of address.

When a bill is ready for you to view, we’ll send you an email or text message to let you know.

There’s no barcode on e-bills so you can’t use them to pay at Paypoint outlets or Post Offices. When you sign up for e-billing, you’ll still receive bill reminders, final notices or summons in the post.

Sign up for e-billing

To sign up for e-billing you’ll need to have a mylambeth account.
