Apprentices are disregarded for council tax purposes. This means they will not be included when we count the number of occupants at their address.

A person is an apprentice if they are;

  • learning a trade, business or profession and are undertaking a training programme leading to a vocational qualification, and
  • they are receiving a gross salary of no more than £195.00 per week.

If you think a member of your household should be disregarded then please email us. Alternatively, you can contact the council tax team for details on 01732 876388.
