You will be classed as a youth training trainee if you are:
- Under 25 years of age
- Undertaking training in conformity with an individual training plan under the Employment and Training Act 1973 which constitutes an approved training scheme* for the purposes of Section 28 of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992.
The application form must be completed by or on behalf of the person who is liable to pay council tax. Youth trainees must provide evidence of youth training trainee status.
Remember, a single person discount (25%) can only be awarded where ONE person remains liable after others have been disregarded, for example, in a three adult household two have to qualify to be disregarded before a discount can be awarded.
