Please note, in some cases you may be required to provide some additional information to individual service areas, but you will be prompted for this after you have submitted your address change.
    • Alternatively, you can continue to contact the service areas individually, including the following, which you may be legally obliged to inform: Vehicle Licensing and Driving Licensing, Income Tax, Social Security, Housing Control and any others you are in contact with, for example: Health and Social Services, Planning and Building Control.
    • If you are buying the property you are moving to, you will need to pdf icon complete this form and send it to Income Tax [256kb] if you would like your tax coding to be adjusted.
    • If you are leaving the island, you will need to inform Social Security and Income Tax as a minimum. This can be done online here.

    • For information on your new home's school catchment, please follow this link.
    • Also, don't forget to tell your employer, bank and insurance providers (vehicle, health, home, pet, travel etc) and any magazines or memberships you subscribe to.
