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

Paulo


Paulo is a single person who lives in a housing association flat in Council Tax Band C. He cares for an elderly relative and receives Carer’s Allowance. He also earns £40 per week from a part-time job. He gets Universal Credit of £179.94 per week.  

Under the banded income scheme, the council will disregard the Housing Element and the Carer Element of Universal Credit:

£179.94 Universal Credit
£67.60 Carer’s Allowance
£40.00 net earnings
- £140.00 Housing Element
- £37.78 Carer Element   

£109.76 per week for the purpose of the banded income scheme.

The table below applies. Paulo is in the income band £96.01 - £123.19 per week, so he qualifies for 83% reduction under the banded income scheme.

Under the current scheme, he would get a reduction of 82% from the Council Tax.
