The e-billing service allows you to access your Council Tax account online 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It also enables you to check your balance, see previous payments, access copies of letters, view your current instalment plan, and check which benefits you receive.
To be eligible for the lucky draw you must:
- sign up to Council Tax e-billing through the new online portal no later than Sunday 24 March

You can also apply for Council Tax single person discount, empty home discount and report a change in your benefit circumstances via the service.
Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Customer Services, Councillor Rory Colville said: “This competition is a great incentive for people to sign up to the new online portal. By joining MyAccount, you can access a variety of online services with just one login – the Council Tax and Benefits portal is just the latest in a range of personalised services. You can also find out your bin collection days, track service enquiries, bookmark pages on the Council website, and lots more.
“It’s also a great opportunity to help us cut down on the amount of paper we all use. I hope that people make the most of this great opportunity and sign up today.”
