Single person discount

Who is eligible

A full Council Tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a property. Where there are fewer than two adults in a property a 25 per cent Single Person Discount is available.

There are certain groups of people who we do not count for Council Tax purposes when determining the number of adults in a household. These people are referred to as "disregarded persons".
