Council Tax - exemptions and discounts (occupied properties)

Training schemes and apprenticeships

Apprentice

If you or someone in your household is an apprentice earning less than £195 a week before tax and national insurance is deducted and undertaking training which will lead to a recognised qualification, you may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill by 25% or 50% depending on how many other adults live in the property.

You will be required to provide evidence of the apprenticeship with your online application. This should be from the apprentice's employer and should confirm the following: 

  • Name of apprentice and date of birth
  • Employer's name and address
  • Course name/certificate or qualification details
  • Course start and end dates
  • Current gross weekly wage and post qualifying weekly wage

You can upload a letter from the apprentice's employer with the above details.  This should be signed and stamped and note the position and contact details of the person providing the information. 

If the employer cannot provide a letter, you can ask them to complete our apprentice certificate. This should be issued to the employer to complete and uploaded as evidence when making your application.

We are unable to process the application without this evidence.
