Apprentice and youth trainee council tax discount

Youth trainee council tax discount

Youth trainees are not counted for council tax.

This means you can get a 25% discount on your council tax if you are the only adult in your household other than a youth trainee.

A youth trainee is someone who:

  • is under 25 years old; and
  • is training under an individual training plan funded by the Skills Funding Agency or Young People's Learning Agency.

Youth Credit, Options, Future and Next Step trainees are also eligible if they are under 25.

If you think you are eligible for the youth trainee discount please contact us.
