There are various discounts that can reduce the Council Tax you have to pay and are separate from Council Tax Benefit/Support.
The Council Tax charge is based on two or more adults living in the property. If only one adult lives in a property as their main home, there is a reduction of one quarter (25%). For substantially unfurnished second or long term empty homes and properties that are furnished second homes there is no discount.
If you don’t live alone you could still claim a discount if the other adults are not counted for council tax when we calculate the bill, we would call this a “disregard discount”. Further information on disregard discount categories can be found below.
If your bill indicates that a discount has been allowed, you must tell the Council of any change in circumstances which affects your entitlement.
