More about the Single Person Discount Review

Gwynedd Council is conducting a review to ensure that only those households who are entitled to a Council Tax single discount receive a 25% reduction in the amount they pay. 

In order to ensure that all discounts awarded are correct, the Council will carry out the review to confirm the discount for genuine claimants and identify those people who are claiming a 25% single persons discount on their Council Tax when they are not entitled to it. Where incorrect claims are identified, the Council will be ending the claims and will reclaim the discount received.

However, some circumstances may not be so easy to explain. To help in these situations we have included the most frequently asked questions that can arise throughout this review period. 

Whilst the aim is to ensure that nobody is receiving a reduction when they are not entitled to it, Gwynedd Council remains committed to ensuring that anyone who is entitled to a discount does receive it. We urge anyone who believes that they could be eligible to receive a reduction to contact the Council’s Taxation Service.
