Council Tax support fund
In December 2022 the Government announced further support to assist the most vulnerable taxpayers who are suffering financial hardship due to the cost of living crisis.
If you are eligible for this support you will receive a one-off reduction of up to £25 on your Council Tax bill for the 2023 to 2024 financial year.
Who is eligible
All Council Taxpayers who are claiming Council Tax Reduction on 1 April 2023 are automatically eligible for the Council Tax Support Fund.
How much your bill could be reduced by
The amount of reduction you receive depends on the amount you pay for Council Tax after your current Council Tax Reduction has been applied.
The amount of reduction you receive will be shown on your 2023 to 2024 Council Tax bill.
If after your Council Tax Reduction your annual bill is:
- more than £25, you will receive a £25 reduction on your bill
- less than £25, you will receive a reduction to take your bill to zero
- zero, you will not receive any reduction
How to claim
You do not need to apply or do anything to claim the Council Tax support fund.
If you are eligible, the reduction will be automatically applied to your Council Tax bill for 2023 to 2024.
