(iii)the usual or last-known place of business or registered office of any other person authorised as mentioned in sub-paragraph (a)(ii);

(c)by delivering it to some person on the premises to which it relates or, if there is no person on the premises to whom it can so be delivered, by fixing it to some conspicuous part of the premises;

(d)without prejudice to the foregoing provisions of this regulation, where premises to which the notice relates are a place of business of the person on whom it is to be served, by leaving it at, or forwarding it by post addressed to that person at, that place of business; or

(e)by electronic communication in accordance with paragraph (3) but subject as mentioned in that paragraph.

(b)sent by fax to the number specified for the proceedings; or

(c)sent or delivered by such other method and to such address as may be agreed by the Clerk, the valuation officer or the listing officer (as the case may be) and the person by whom the notice is to be served.

(3) Subject to paragraph (4), if a party provides a fax number, email address or other details for the electronic transmission of documents to them, that party must accept service of notices and delivery of documents by that method.

(4) If a party informs the Clerk and all other parties that a particular form of communication (other than post or delivery) should not be used to serve notice on, or provide documents to, that party, that form of communication must not be used.

(5) If the Clerk or a party sends a notice to a party or the Clerk by email or any other electronic means of communication, the recipient may request that the sender provide a hard copy of the notice to the recipient.

(6) A request under paragraph (5) must be made as soon as reasonably practicable after the recipient receives the notice or document electronically.

(7) If the name of any taxpayer on whom a notice is required or authorised to be served cannot after reasonable inquiry be ascertained, the notice may be served by addressing it to “The Council Tax Payer” of the dwelling concerned (naming the dwelling), without further name or description.

(8) For the purpose of any legal proceedings, a notice given by electronic communication, shall, unless the contrary is proved, be treated as served on the second business day after it was sent.

(9) A person who has notified an address for the purpose of electronic communication shall, by notice in writing to the Clerk and the other parties, advise the Clerk and the other parties of any change in that address; and the change shall take effect on the third business day after the date on which the notice is received by the Clerk and the other parties, as the case may be.

(10) The Clerk and each party may assume that the address provided by a party or its representative is and remains the address to which documents should be sent or delivered until receiving written notification to the contrary.

(b)any reference to a notice includes a reference to any other document required or authorised to be served; and
