Add services to your account

As soon as you have registered your online account you can then link your council tax account.

To link your council tax account, you will need your council tax reference number which you can find on your bill. This is a 9-digit number starting with a 3.

You can also add other services to your account such as housing benefits, business rates and landlord services.
