What your bill tells you
Your Council Tax bill tells you:
- who in the household is liable to pay
- how much money you need to pay
- when you need to pay – read more about Council Tax payment plans
- if you get any discounts or exemptions
- how we work out your bill
When you should receive your bill
We send out Council Tax bills when you become the person who must pay Council Tax at a property. After that, we send a new bill every March.
Only one bill is sent to a property. This is for everyone that lives in the property that needs to pay Council Tax.
We’ll send another bill if there's been an adjustment or if you’ve requested another copy.
Change to paperless bills
You can swap from paper bills to paperless online bills - this is known as e-billing. This helps to save paper, and all your bills are stored safely in your online account.
We'll email you when your latest bill is ready for you to see it.
There’s no barcode on the online bills, so you cannot use them to pay at Paypoint outlets or Post Offices.
To change to paperless online billing you need to have a Council Tax account on mylambeth.
When you fill in the e-billing form you'll get an error message, but you should ignore this. It's a technical problem that we know about. Your request will go through properly and you'll get an email to confirm that you've changed to e-billing.
