Discount for accommodation connected to my job

Question

What if I live in accommodation that's related to my job?

Answer

If the terms and conditions of your job mean that you have to live in accommodation provided with your job. And you have moved out of your main home, you can claim a 50% discount in your council tax. Examples might be a caretaker, or publican.

You can’t claim any discount if you are simply renting a second home, because it is more convenient, and nearer to where you work.

If you think that this discount will apply to your property, please print a job related discount form (pdf) and send it to us.
