In April 2014, a new Council Tax discount of 50% was introduced for family annexes.
In order to qualify for the discount, the annexe must be either used by the resident/s of the main property or occupied by a family member. If a non-family member occupies the annexe the discount will not apply.
Some annexes are already exempt from Council Tax and these will not be affected by the new discount and will continue to be exempt. If you think you may qualify for the new discount please contact us on 01424 451081.
If you think you, or a member of your household may be entitled to a discount and one is not already shown on your bill, you should contact us straight away.
If your bill indicates that a discount has been allowed, you must tell us of any change of circumstance that effects your entitlement straight away. If you fail to do so you may be required to pay a penalty.
