Council Tax Reduction Scheme

You may be able to get help with paying your Council Tax. Council Tax Reduction (CTR) is a Government scheme to help those on low incomes.

For guidance visit The Scottish Government website.

Second Adult Rebate is an award which is made to those who are liable for Council Tax for the property they live in who also have a second adult in the property who is on a low income.

Only one format can be awarded and this can only provide assistance with the payment of Council Tax and so does not cover other charges such as Water and Sewerage.

If you would like to know if you would qualify, (or how much you may be entitled to) visit our Benefits Calculator - however this is simply an estimate and not legally binding.
