Apprentices - Council Tax discount

You can claim an apprentice discount if you're employed to learn a trade, business, profession or vocation.

You must be training to gain a qualification from the National Council for Vocational Qualification. You should earn less than £195 a week and substantially less than the salary you would likely receive if you achieve the qualification.

How to apply

To apply for an apprentice Council Tax discount, you need:

  • A copy of your apprenticeship agreement or a signed copy of the agreement between you and your employer.
  • Copies of your last 5 wage slips if you're paid weekly or your last 2 wage slips if you're paid monthly.
  • Your 8-digit Council Tax reference number which you can find on your bill.
