Single person discount

Please note: due to an urgent update by our software suppliers, the Council Tax online discount form and Benefits claims forms will not be available from 7pm on Thursday 18 November until 7am on Friday 19 November. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you are the only adult living in your household then you may be entitled to a single person discount of 25% off your annual Council Tax bill. You cannot claim for a second home.

Even if there is more than one person aged 18 living in your household you may still be entitled to a discount as some adults may not count when we calculate the bill. The discount only applies at the property you live in. These include:

  • full time students 
  • student nurses
  • apprentices
  • youth trainees


If you are claiming single person discount and your circumstances change in a way that affects your entitlement, you must report the change.

If you have received a letter asking you to review your discount, you can find further information in our discount review section.
