Make the switch to on­line

Paisley Daily Express - - Ladies Get In The Swing For Charity -

Home­own­ers in Ren­frew­shire are be­ing en­cour­aged to go pa­per­less by man­ag­ing their TV li­cence on­line.

The num­ber of peo­ple in the area re­ceiv­ing their TV li­cence by email has jumped by al­most 20 per cent (19 per cent) in the past year.

Money Ad­vice Scot­land is pro­vid­ing its top rea­sons for switch­ing to dig­i­tal.

The char­ity said that go­ing pa­per­less al­lows peo­ple to man­age their li­cences on­line, sig­nif­i­cantly cut­ting down on pa­per and pro­vid­ing an­other re­source to help man­age funds.

Fer­gus Reid, spokesper­son for TV Li­cens­ing, said: “As peo­ple con­tinue to man­age more and more el­e­ments of their lives on­line such as bank­ing, house­hold bills and shop­ping, it makes sense that they should also go dig­i­tal with their TV li­cence.

“It al­lows peo­ple to keep on top of their li­cences with­out the has­sle of keep­ing hard copies of pa­per­work.”

Yvonne Mac­der­mid, chief ex­ec­u­tive at Money Ad­vice Scot­land, said: “Money Ad­vice Scot­land wel­comes the move to pa­per­less li­cences, which for many peo­ple in Scot­land will en­able them to keep track of their li­cence in a se­cure way.

“How­ever, for some parts of the pop­u­la­tion who do not have ac­cess to email, a con­ven­tional method of pur­chas­ing and re­ceiv­ing a li­cence in the post needs to be re­tained.”
