Discounts for apprentices

Question

What if I am (or some who lives with me is) an apprentice?

Answer

Apprentices are ignored or “disregarded” when we calculate the council tax bill for a property.  For council tax purposes an apprentice is someone who is over 18 living in the property and meets the following criteria:

  • is employed for the purpose of learning a profession and
  • is on training programme that leads to a qualification accredited by the National Council for Accredited Qualifications and
  • earns less than £195 per week

If you think that you might be entitled to this discount please print our apprentice discount form (pdf) and send it to us.
