Family annexe discount

From 1 April 2014 a new family annexe discount has been introduced. A 50% discount would apply if the annexe is used by the occupier of the main building or a member of his/her family. Please contact us us for more information. 

Change in circumstances

Failure to notify us that a discount should not have been granted or that it is no longer applicable could lead to financial penalties being applied to the liable person concerned in addition to the disregard being revoked. See our Report changes affecting your council tax page for more information
