Let us know straight away when you move home so you pay the right amount of council tax.
Tell us you're moving
If you are moving from one Cornwall address to another
Once you've told us, we'll send you a revised bill showing anything you still owe for your old address along, with details of what you owe for your new address.
If you've overpaid for your old address, we will usually use the credit to reduce what you owe at your new address.
Your revised bill will tell you what your new instalments will be.
If you are moving into Cornwall
Tell us straight away, so you will have more time to pay your bill. You must pay it by the 31 March.
We charge you from the date you moved in to your new home, or from your sale/tenancy date if that is earlier.
Your old council will charge you up to the date you left their area.
Remember to tell them the date you moved so they get your charge right.
If you are moving out of Cornwall
We charge you up to the date you moved out (or to the end of your tenancy or date of sale).
Your new council will charge you from the day you move into their area (or from the date of your ownership/tenancy agreement).
Remember to tell them you have moved in so they can bill you at your new address.
In most cases when a property is empty, for example between tenancies or pending sale, you’ll have to pay the full amount of council tax.
