Moving in or out of the borough
If you are moving in or out of the borough you need to tell us. The easiest way to do this is to use the Move in / Move out Council Tax option in My Account
You can use this if:-
- you are moving into Hammersmith & Fulham. Tell us the address you are moving from including the post code
- you are a resident moving out of Hammersmith & Fulham. Tell us the address you are moving to including the post code
- you are moving into the borough within the next 30 days or have moved in within the last 60 days.
Moving in from or out to an address abroad?
You will need to complete the Moving in from an address abroad form or the Moving out to an address abroad form also available in My Account. Log in or create an account using the buttons above and click on the Council tax forms icon in the 'otherThingsICanDo' section.
You will not be able to use the move in move out forms if you moved into the borough more than 60 days ago or want to tell us about a move happening more than 30 days from now. In these circumstances please contact us about your move. Contact us
You will need to let other services within the council know, for example if you have a parking permit - contact us about parking permits.
Most of the time, changes you make to your account details will be displayed straight away.
However if you are using the moving in/moving out form after 9pm, you may need to wait until after 7am the next day for your account to be fully updated and you can then continue with applying other changes such as sole occupier discount or setting up a direct debit.
This is the most efficient way for us to collect council tax. Once your council tax account is registered on My Account you can set up a direct debit, view your instalments and change the bank account details. You may not be able to do this straight away.
If you are moving into a new address within Hammersmith & Fulham and are a sole occupier, once you register your council tax account on My Account you can then use the sole occupier discount facility within the council tax part of My Account to apply for sole occupier discount. This will allow you to see your new balance and adjusted instalments. You may not be able to do this straight away.
Can't view your council details after telling us about a move/change?
Not all cases can be updated automatically – some situations require us to check information. If this happens we will email you or send an amended bill in the post. You will then be able to see your council tax information on My Account by adding your council tax account to your My Account (if you've not already done so).
