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:
You can switch to paperless billing if you’d prefer to receive electronic bills instead of paper copies.
- 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.
When you've filled in the e-billing signup form you'll get an error message. Don't worry about this, your request will go through and you'll received an email confirming you’ve registered for e-billing.
