Council Tax Support Fund 2023/2024
The government has announced further support to help the most economically vulnerable households with their Council Tax bills for the new year, starting 1 April 2023.
All Council Tax payers who are receiving Council Tax Support on 1 April 2023 will be automatically eligible for the Council Tax Support Fund of up to £25.00.
The amount of reduction you receive depends on the amount of Council Tax you have to pay, after your current Council Tax Support has been applied.
If after your Council Tax Support your annual bill is:
- more than £25; you will receive a £25 reduction on your bill
- £25 or less; you will receive a reduction to take your bill to zero
- zero; you will not receive any reduction
The council will be providing further support through our discretionary scheme with a top up of up to £10.00, meaning the total support will be up to £35.00. Any residual funding will be used to support vulnerable households in financial hardship, including anyone who receives Council Tax support after 1 April 2023.
If you are in receipt of Council Tax support there is no need for you to contact us as the reduction will be automatically applied to your Council tax bill for 2023/2024.
