Council tax discounts

Show all parts of this guide

6. Annexes

A new council tax discount was introduced by the government from 1 April 2014. It applies to people living in a property with annexes. The annexe must either be in use by a resident of the main property, or occupied by a relative of the person who pays council tax on the main property with the annexe.

The discount applies where the annexe has been separately banded and is classed as a separate dwelling. The council tax payer will know if the property has been classed as a separate dwelling, because they will also have a council tax bill for it.

The discount will reduce the amount of council tax payable on the annexe by 50%.

To obtain the discount, please download this application form.
