How to set up a new Council Tax account on a property you have recently moved into.
If you’re an adult and not in full-time education, or covered by another exemption or relief, you must pay Council Tax.
Council Tax is paid to the local authority for the area where you live.
To pay Council Tax, contact your local authority. Your local authority will register you and will send you a Council Tax bill. They will also tell you how and when to pay.
If you move to a new property or to a new area, tell your local authority or tell the local authority for the new area you have moved to.
