Further information about SPD reviews

Each year we receive lots of applications for 'single occupancy discount’ relating to council tax bills. Sadly, some applications are not genuine, and these people are attempting to cheat the system by fraudulently claiming reductions.

Laws exists which allow us to:

  • prosecute council tax cheats through the court system
  • make fraudulent claimants pay back the money they owe

SPD review outcomes

Your discounts will continue if you:

  • complete the declaration and still qualify

Your discount will be stopped if you:

  • fail to complete the declaration
  • no longer qualify
