Discounts for apprentices

If one or more of the occupants of a property is an apprentice, a 25% discount may apply because he/she is classed as not being counted for Council Tax purposes.

No discount applies if two or more people other than the apprentice (or any other adults who are not counted) live in the property.

If a person is an apprentice what are the conditions for not being counted?

An apprentice is not counted for the purpose of Council Tax if he/she is on a particular day:

  • employed for the purpose of learning a trade, business, profession, office, employment or
    vocation
  • undertaking a programme of training leading to a qualification accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority; and
  • employed at a salary or in receipt of an allowance or both, which are, in total no more than £195 (gross) per week.
