All residents or landlords within the Borough must pay Council Tax.

This is a property tax that helps fund local services provided by the following organisations:

  • Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council
  • Hertfordshire County Council
  • Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire

If you have never paid Council Tax before, please complete the registration form below.

You can also report a change of address and apply for discounts and exemptions.

You can pay your council tax bill online every month or setup a Direct Debit to ensure payments are collected on time and in agreed instalments.

Should you need help paying your Council Tax, you can apply for Council Tax support.

What we can do

We will send you an annual bill, listing the total amount of council tax you will need to pay for the financial year ahead (April to March of the following year).

This includes a percentage breakdown of what will be paid to each of the organisations (named above), as well as a summary of your monthly instalments.

Payments are typically over a 10 month period, between April (the beginning of the financial year) and the following January. This can also be set to a 12 month period upon request.
