Changes to CTR and money saving tips
From 1 April 2020, we introduced a new Council Tax Reduction (CTR) scheme for working age people.
The changes are detailed here, along with money saving tips to help you maximise your income.

The revisions to CTR give more relief to those struggling on lower incomes, while raising the amount those on higher income have to pay .
The new scheme revises the weekly excess income bands used to assess entitlement to CTR.
We use weekly excess income bands to make it simpler. These bands allow you to vary your hours at work without losing support.
The new scheme will also give you more certainty about how much Council Tax you need to pay, and will result in less Council Tax bills if your income fluctuates within the same band.
