Your full Council Tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a property.
If you are the only person over 18 years old who lives in your home, you may be entitled to a discount of 25%.
Once your child reaches the age of 18 you are longer eligible for Single Person Discount.
If your child is in full time education you may qualify for a Student Disregard, which is a 25% discount.
Contact Student Services at the place of study who will issue a Council Tax Student Certificate, which will then need to be forwarded to the Council Tax Section for your discount to be awarded.
If your child is starting an apprenticeship there is a 25% disregard, proving the qualifying criteria are met, please complete the application form.
When someone is on holiday/travelling, or working away from home, this is regarded as temporary absence and the remaining person would not be eligible to claim a 25% single person discount.

Once your form has been submitted your request will be considered and if successful your account will be updated accordingly and a revised Demand Notice issued to you.
