What it is:
A council tax letter is a bill or statement from your local council that outlines how much council tax you owe and pay the local authorities.
Frequently used for:
An apostilled council tax letter is often used to provide proof of your UK residential address.
It could also be requested when:
- Opening bank accounts overseas
- Buying a property overseas
- Starting a new business overseas
- Starting a new job overseas
Original or copy:
We can apostille either the original or a solicitor-certified copy of the original.
You can get a replacement by logging into your online account and printing the document, or you could request it from the local council office.
How much does it cost?
An apostille for a certified council tax letter starts from £79 (including FCDO fees, our fees & VAT).
If the letter requires solicitor certification, the cost is £110. (This includes all fees)
Other costs will depend on what service you choose. For example, same-day service. The price will also depend on whether you need a notary or embassy attestation and what return delivery method you choose.
Note that the same day is not available if embassy attestation is also required.
