Change of address or circumstance

If there is a change in circumstance with your council tax, you must inform Erewash Borough Council immediately. For example, if you move address or you are no longer entitled to a discount or exemption, you must let us know.

Councils have powers to impose penalties where a person is required by law to provide information.  If a person either fails to provide information, or supplies information which he/she knows to be false, Erewash Borough Council can charge a penalty of £70 up to £280.

You can tell us about some changes using our online forms.  If a property is unoccupied, we will also need to know if it is substantially unfurnished or not, as you may qualify for an Exemption.
