Impact on Council Tax Liability

The Ukrainian individual(s) is treated as though they are not resident in the hosts' home.

This means that where a Single Person Discount has been applied, it will remain in place.

The same conditions will apply for all other council tax exemptions.

Where a self-contained property is occupied by a Ukrainian refugee(s) some exemptions may apply. For more details about this please contact us.
