Before you start please ensure you have the following information ready:

  • Your Council Tax reference number
  • postcode and house number/name of the property you are leaving
  • postcode and house number/name of the property you are moving to.  Even if you are not moving within the Trafford area we will need this so we can forward your final bill to you.
