Single person discount

A full council tax bill is based on at least two adults being resident in a property.

Some people are not counted - they are 'disregarded'.

You may be able to get a 'disregard' discount if all of the residents but one are disregarded, or you are the only resident and are disregarded.

You may be entitled to a 25% council tax reduction if you meet the criteria below:

  • If you are the only adult (over 18 years) in your property, or
  • If some of the people living in the property are not counted for council tax purposes.

You will not be entitled to a discount if the property is unoccupied.

To apply for single person discount you we will need:

  • Your surname,
  • Your property postcode,
  • Your council tax reference number (you can find your account reference on your council tax bill or on your bank statement if you pay by direct debit)
