The Prime Minister has today set out the next steps in the easing of lockdown. See the press conference at Youtube: Prime Minister's Coronavirus press conference (10 May 2021) for details.

Between 4.00pm on Wednesday 12 May and 7.30am on Thursday 13 May, the following systems will be unavailable due to essential maintenance: our online council tax, business rates and housing benefit overpayments service, our welfare assistance form and our test and trace payments form. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Money off council tax if you are 18 years old and receive child benefit


If you're over 18 years old and receive child benefit you're not counted (disregarded) when calculating council tax.

If you continue to receive child benefit over the age of 18 years (usually where full time education continues), you can apply for council tax discount.
