Council Tax and members of visiting forces

A property is exempt (which means you don't have to pay Council Tax for the property) if at least one person who would normally be responsible for paying the Council Tax is a member of a visiting force.

If a member of a visiting force lives with you but would not be responsible for paying Council Tax, you call apply for a 25% discount.

A person is classed as a member of a visiting force if they are:

  • a member of that force, or a member of a civilian component of the force; or
  • a dependant of a member, provided that the dependant is not a British citizen or normally resident in the UK

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