About your first bill

You’ll get your first bill within 10 days. It’ll be higher than usual because it includes charges for the first 2-6 days of your plan plus the full cost of the following month. 

That’s only for your first bill, though. After that, you’ll be billed at the agreed monthly cost, plus any charges for services used outside your normal allowance. 

We’ll send a notification when your bill’s ready and let you know when payment’s due. 

All charges on your bill automatically include VAT. Here’s how to get a VAT invoice if you need one.  

What’s included in your first bill

In the breakdown of your first bill, you’ll see Monthly price plan charges followed by 2 charges: 

This pink square represents the first few days on the calendar image to the right. The first is for the first 2-6 days of your plan. This one-off charge lets you use our network right away while we’re setting up your account.

This beige square represents the first full monthly charges on the calendar image to the right.The second is your first full monthly charge. You’ll see this on all future bills.

These charges make up the Total monthly price plan charges for your first bill. 

Any Add-ons or discounts will show as 2 charges, with the first covering the initial 2-6 days of your plan. And the second for your first full month. Remember, this is only for your first bill. After that, you’ll be billed at the agreed monthly cost, plus any charges for services used outside your normal allowance. 

Got a Device plan? You’ll see your device plan agreement under Account level breakdown. Your monthly device payments won’t be shown there, though – that’s a separate contract with a separate Direct Debit payment. 

Need a Device plan statement? Give us a call, and we’ll help you out.  

Calendar shows dates from 26th to 15th. First bill shows first 2 to 6 days in pink and full month in beige

More information on your first bill

Number of connections

This is where you can find your Three phone number and any other connections associated with your billing account. 

If you’ve brought your number to Three from a different network, you’ll have a temporary number for a few days. It’ll show on your bill as a separate connection for the days before your number was moved from your last network. 

VAT charges

Your first bill is itemised and shows your monthly recurring and other charges plus any discounts and credits before VAT. Underneath that, you’ll see the combined total plus the VAT amount.  

Finally, you’ll see your total charges after VAT and total amount due to be taken on your payment date.
