Sign up for eBilling and enter iPad Mini free prize draw

You could win an iPad Mini when you sign up to manage your Council Tax or Business Rates bills online with East Northamptonshire Council.

Each new eligible East Northamptonshire household or business that signs up to the eBilling service by 27 February 2015 will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win an iPad Mini (16GB) supplied by AMC Computer Supplies LTD of Kettering.

eBilling is the quick, safe and secure way to access your Council Tax and Business Rates bills.  You can easily keep track of your bills from the comfort of your own home and you don’t have to worry about waiting for bills in the post. You also don’t have to bother with filing as your bill is stored for you on your own account which you can access online at any time.

The benefits of eBilling include:

  • viewing your bills when and where you like
  • cutting down on postage and mail through your letterbox
  • always knowing where your bill is
  • it’s environmentally friendly
  • it’s secure
  • it’s free to sign up to

Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, Steven North, explains:

“Each year, East Northamptonshire Council sends up to 80,000 bills and notices.  Every household and business that signs up to eBilling will help us to save paper and postage, money that can be used elsewhere on local services.

“By signing up to this free service, you’ll be able to view your council bills when and where you like in a secure and easy way, happy in the knowledge that you’re also doing your bit to save paper.”

Sign up at and sign up by 27 February 2015 to be entered into a prize draw with the chance of winning an iPad Mini. See for terms and conditions.
