Your account online
Using our new Citizen Access portal you can choose to receive your bills via email, tell us you’ve moved home, apply for or cancel single person’s discount, set up payment via Direct Debit for council tax and business rates or tell us you’re a full-time student or an apprentice.
You can also check the council tax band or rateable value of properties within our local authority area. All you need is some information that will be displayed on your latest bill or notice to access your account or register so you can use your own password.
From your online account you can:
- View your business rates or council tax account details - **Please note that production of annual council tax and business rates bills are in progress. Unfortunately this means you won’t be able to view any notices from your online account. Once the annual bills have been issued, you will once again be able to view notices online. Thank you for your patience during this time.**
- Apply to pay your council tax by direct debit or change your bank details
- Apply for or cancel a single person's discount
