If you are moving to a new address within Birmingham or leaving Birmingham, it is important you tell us without delay. Tell us immediately using the button report change in circumstances
If you are moving from another Birmingham address we will close your old account and send you a bill for anything you still owe. If you have overpaid, we will transfer the credit to your new account. We will send you a new bill with a new account number. It will tell you what your instalments will be and when you need to pay them. If you made your council tax payments using a payment card at your previous address you should stop using this. You will need to contact us to apply for another card as this will be required for your new address.
If you are unsure whether Birmingham City Council is responsible for collecting council tax at your new address, please check the Valuation Office Agency’s Website. You can then find out the charge for the current financial year through visiting the Council Tax enquiry page.
When you complete the ‘change in circumstance’ form, it will help if you have the following details to hand:
o The completion date(s) of any property sold or bought
o The name of the person who has bought your previous property
o Your tenancy start and end dates, if renting
o Your solicitor’s details
o Your landlord’s or managing agent’s details, if renting.
Do not notify us of a change of address more than 14 days before you are due to move.
