Recovery & Billing

Open Access (E-Billing)

Braintree District Council can now issue your Council Tax or Business Rate bill electronically, rather than by post.

This service is changing and for customers who already receive their bill electronically, you will need to register to our Open Access Secure Portal, to ensure your bill is viewed securely we are removing the PDF attachment from your email and this will be replaced with a link directly to a secure web page called Open Access. Here you will be able to register or log in.

Please use the following links to set up or log into Open Access (E-billing).

All other notices and legal documents i.e. Reminders, Final Notices, Summonses will be continued to be issued in paper format.
