It’s important we keep our records up to date. So, if there are changes to your bank details or other information about you, here’s how you can let us know.

How to update your bank details:

You can change your bank details on this website. Also, if you pay for your licence by Direct Debit, you can change the day that payments are taken from your account.

To update your bank details, you will need to tell us:

  • your TV Licence number
  • your last name
  • your postcode
  • the bank details we have for you (the bank account number and sort code).

How to update your personal information:

You can change other details about you on this website. Things like:

  • your name
  • the address on your TV Licence
  • the address where we can write to you
  • your email address
  • your phone number
  • how you like to receive your licence.

You will need your TV Licence number to do this.

Hear from us by email, instead of by post

You can change how you want to hear from us. When it’s time to renew your licence, we can send you reminders by email instead of sending letters through the post.

You can also choose to get a paperless TV Licence. This means we will email you when your TV Licence renews, instead of sending you a paper one in the post.

Find out how to change to a TV Licence online instead of a paper TV Licence.
