Getting started and using your account

Sign up to view your

details and council tax bills online

When you register for an online council tax account you’ll be asked for the following:

  • Your email address
  • a username
  • a password and
  • a security question (which you’ll use if you forget your password)

Then you need to add in the Services you want to view:

  • Council Tax
  • Housing Benefits
  • Landlord
  • Business Rates

We will send an email to your registered email address with a link for you to click on. This is to verify it is your email address.

You will be asked for your account reference, the surname of the account holder and your postcode to sign up.

You’re then taken to the e-billing sign up screens. Once you have registered for ebilling you’ll be asked again to verify your email address via a link that is sent to your registered email address.

Information you can view online

For Council Tax accounts, you can view Council Tax bands and yearly charges.
