Single Person Discount frequently asked questions (FAQs)

More information

Caerphilly County Borough Council is currently carrying out a review of residents receiving a 25% discount on their council tax.  

Single Person Discount (SPD) is claimed when an adult is the sole adult occupant of a property. The council is aware that while the vast majority of residents are claiming the discount appropriately, there may be a small minority who are wrongly claiming the discount. These residents may not have reported a change in their circumstances and are receiving the discount when they are no longer entitled to it. 

The council will shortly be sending some residents receiving Single Person Discount a letter asking them to confirm their current circumstances. This will give residents the opportunity to notify the council if there has been a change in their circumstances.  

If residents do not respond to this letter, they will have their Single Person Discount removed and further investigations may be undertaken.  

Deputy Leader Cllr Barbara Jones said, “While we know the vast majority of our residents are correctly claiming any council tax discounts they receive, unfortunately there remains a very small minority that are not. We must take any fraudulent claims seriously, and as a council we are very proactive in confirming all discount entitlements. 

“This simple review exercise will help ensure that those entitled to such discounts continue to receive them, while making sure that any changes in circumstances are reviewed and recorded”. 

Residents should note that the pre-paid envelopes provided to return the forms in will have a Nottingham address on them, not a Caerphilly county borough one. The local government scanning facility based in Nottingham process documents on behalf of many local authorities across the country.
