What do you need to make your application?

Before starting this application form, make sure you have available:

  • Your Council Tax account reference - this can be found on the letter sent to you inviting you to register or your annual Council tax bill.
  • Your National Insurance Number - this can be found on any benefit letters you may have, payslips, or HMRC letters.

    If you do not have a National Insurance Number please contact our customer service team on 01792 636311 to discuss how you will complete your registration. Opening times are Mon – Fri (excluding bank holidays) 10am to 3pm
  • An email address that can be used to update you about your registration and payment
  • Your sort code and account number for the bank account where you wish to receive the payment into. If you do not have a bank account, you will be able to select an alternative method of payment, however as arrangements for this are still being developed there is expected to be at least a 4 week delay in the payment being issued. More details on this will be provided to your email address if you select this option.

Registering takes around 5 minutes.
