How to register for Council Tax

You can also set up a Direct Debit to pay your bill, and apply for a discount, all at the same time as registering. If you have any difficulty completing the form, please contact us.

Please quote your Council Tax account reference in all correspondence (if you have one) – your account reference is 8 or 9 digits long and starts with a 4, 7 or 8. You can find it on your Council Tax bill or any letter we’ve sent about your Council Tax.
