Single Person Discount (SPD) Review

What to do if you have received a SPD review letter.

Under the Local Government Finance Act 1992, the council is required to carry out a regular review of Council Tax accounts where a single person discount has been awarded.

Before completing the review form, you must read the following.

The form will ask you to make a declaration about the number of people residing in the property who are aged over 18. You should include grown up children who live at home, even if they are a student. You should also include any lodgers.

To falsely claim a discount is a criminal offence and you may become liable for prosecution.

Any future changes affecting your Council Tax account should be notified to the council within 21 days.
