Council Tax & Benefits

Council Tax and Benefits

Burnley Council collects Council Tax for the borough. This helps fund the services we provide – as well as the work of Lancashire County Council (including education and social services), Lancashire Fire Authority and the Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner.

The Revenues & Benefits service also administers claims for housing benefit on behalf of the Department for Work & Pensions. We also administer the Discretionary Housing Payment scheme.

Follow the links to the right for information about Council Tax, the Benefits we administer and welfare reforms which are currently being implemented – and where to go for free debt advice. Use our checker to calculate any benefits you may be entitled to.

Simply Click – Your council services online

***Please note, our online portal currently has very limited funtionality as we are working on annual billing and, therefore, your online key will not work. You will receive a new online key with your new bill in March 2017***

We've launched a new way to access your Council Tax online. This service provides users with the ability to manage their Council Tax from the comfort of their own home at a time that suits them.

View your council tax balance, register a change of address, apply for a discount or exemption or tell us about a tenant moving in or out of your property. View when your next payment is due, set up or amend a direct debit. This new system means we receive your information faster, so we can make any changes to your account sooner.   You can even upload your evidence using the following form

It’s quick, safe and easy to use, so there is no need to call or queue, simply click to view.

If you don’t have access to a PC or access to the internet, you can use one of free access PCs located at any of the Burnley libraries, at some local community centres or in our main customer service centre at Contact Burnley in Parker Lane, where staff are on hand to help.

Follow the link to access your account and see for yourself; alternatively if you need more help or information on how to use your Council Tax account online, take a look at our helpful guides.
