Homes for Ukraine discount
Ukrainian nationals and immediate family members who came to the UK through the Homes for Ukraine Scheme, can look for their own property to rent when their sponsorship arrangement ends. They will be responsible for the Council Tax themselves, but if all the residents have Homes for Ukraine visas then they will receive a 50% discount and they may also be able to claim Council Tax support, additionally you may be able to claim Universal credit.
Where Council Tax has already been paid and this reduction creates a credit on the account, you may be eligible for a refund.
Information and evidence required to receive a 50% discount:
- Council Tax account number
- The names of the occupants (all occupiers must be on Homes for Ukraine scheme)
- Evidence of permission to enter or stay in the UK under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme such as the visa, for each resident
