Council Tax discounts

Single person discount

You may be entitled to a 25% discount off your Council Tax bill if you are the only person (aged 18 or over) living in a property.

To claim this discount please fill in the form below. Before you start you will need your Council Tax account number.

If we are satisfied that you qualify for a discount we will send you a new bill. We send review forms to check that the discounts still apply.

Please contact us straight away if someone else over the age of 18 moves into the property, as this may affect your discount.

Other discounts

We calculate your Council Tax by assuming that at least two adults are living in the property. Half of the Council Tax is for the property, and the other half is for the people who live there. We do not count some people when we work out how many adults live in the property - these people are 'disregarded' adults. This may allow you to receive a discount even if you do not live alone. If all members of the household are disregarded you may be able to get a 50% discount off your Council Tax.

These following people are disregarded:

You can apply for any of these discounts via the Council Tax forms page.

Students will need to get a Council Tax certificate from their place of study.
