Hostels council tax exemption

The owners of hostels and night shelters are responsible for paying council tax.

The person responsible for paying the bill can claim a discount if the main or only purpose of the property is to provide accommodation for people with no fixed address and no settled way of life.

The accommodation must be

  • not in self-contained sets of premises
  • under licences to occupy and not tenancies. 

If you think this discount may apply to you, please contact us.
