Council Tax discounts


What is a discount?

Your council tax is made up of two parts:

  • half for the property part
  • half for the personal part.

Sometimes you don't have to pay all the personal part:

If there is only one person over 18 in your home, you can get a single occupier discount. You only have to pay half of the personal part. This means you get 25% off the whole bill. Single person's discount only applies to your main home, where you live. You can't get it for a second home.

Some people aren't counted for council tax. If there are people in your home who aren't counted, it may also mean that you can get a single person's discount.


There are a number of other discounts for certain people who are over the age of 18
