An example of how the Council Tax Reduction Scheme could work.

Latif and Soha

Latif and Soha have one child. They rent privately: the property they rent is in Council Tax Band F. Latif works full time and earns £405 a week after tax and national insurance. They receive Universal Credit of £356.23 a week.

Under the banded income scheme, the council will disregard the Housing Element of Universal Credit, which in their case is £365.92. However, as the Universal Credit is only £356.23 per week, we can only disregard this amount.

£356.23 Universal Credit
£405.00 Earnings
- £356.23 Housing Element (part)

£405.00 per week for the purpose of the banded income scheme.

This is in the income band £380.77 - £424.95, so they qualify for a 15% reduction. Under the current scheme they would not qualify for a reduction.

Latif and Soha, the following month

Looking at the same family a month later, Latif has had a decrease in his pay. He now earns £300, and their Universal Credit has changed to £422.38 per week. 

Their income under the banded scheme is now:

£422.38 Universal Credit
£300.00 Earnings
- £365.92 Housing Element

£356.46 per week for the purpose of the banded income scheme.

They are now in the income band £336.58 - £380.76, so they now qualify for a 32% reduction under the banded income scheme. Under the current scheme, they would get a reduction of 12% from the Council Tax.
