Register for e-billing for your Council Tax bill and save both time and money.
Braintree District Council’s e-billing system allows residents to register and receive their council tax bill and correspondence via email rather the post. Businesses can also register and receive their business rates bill online.
Register before the end of January 2014 to ensure your account is recorded for the 2014/15 bills, at: www.braintree.gov.uk/e-billing
Cllr David Bebb, Cabinet Member for Resources at Braintree District Council said:
“As with utility companies, many people prefer to receive bills and correspondence online, and via the e-billing system we want to significantly reduce the number of people receiving their bills through the post.”
Available to any Council Tax/Non Domestic ratepayer, e-billing is available to those that pay via direct debit or monthly.
Cllr Bebb added: “This is not about the way you pay your bill but rather how you receive the bill itself. We currently have over 62,000 live accounts paying council tax and almost 4500 business rate payers, and we estimate that around £25,000 is being spent each year in contacting people, to send their bill, and then in reminders or other correspondence.
“This is money that we would rather spend elsewhere and so the more people we can sign up to e-billing the better.”
