More residents in Sefton are being encouraged to sign up to a system which allows them to receive their Council Tax bills online.

Residents can register and switch to e-Billing which allows them to receive their Council Tax bill, along with all the supporting information, electronically.

Through the system, which was introduced in 2015, as soon as a Council Tax bill is available an email notification is sent out.

Each year around 125,000 annual bills for Council Tax are issued in March and around 120,000 daily bills per year to Sefton residents.

Switching to E-Billing saves money on printing and postage along with protecting the environment by reducing the need for paper and envelopes.

Cllr Paulette Lappin, Cabinet Member Regulatory, Compliance and Corporate Services, said: “Since we introduced e-billing last year, about 1,200 residents have since registered. The process is simple and easy and most importantly it is free.

“Once registered, it speeds things up as you get to see your Council Tax bill as soon as it is available using a secure email system.

“Anyone who signs up to the system will always know where their bill is and they will also be doing their bit for the environment as it will stop the need for using paper, printing and envelopes. It will also help us to save money in the process.”
