Discounts

The full Council Tax bill is based on the assumption that two adults are living in a property. However, there are certain groups of people who are not counted when considering the number of adults, and where a discount can apply.

How long does the discount last?

If a discount is granted, it will last as long as the qualifying criteria is met. If your situation changes that could affect your entitlement to the discount, you must contact us within 21 days.

In all cases where a time-limited discount applies, a bill will be issued that shows the discount period from the date it starts until the end of the current financial year. A change will be made when the discount expires (or circumstances change), and a bill issued for the rest of the financial year.
