Amendment of council tax rules in England for those opening up their homes under the Homes for Ukraine scheme

New regulations in force from today

New regulations have been issued that provide for the amendment of council tax rules in England that apply to those opening up their homes under the Homes for Ukraine scheme.

In force from 12 April 2022, the Council Tax (Discount Disregards and Exempt Dwellings) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2022 (SI.No.439/2022) amend the Council Tax (Additional Provisions for Discount Disregards) Regulations 1992 (SI.No.2942/1992) (the Discount Disregards Regulations) and the Council Tax (Exempt Dwellings) Order 1992 (SI.No.558/1992) (the Exempt Dwellings Order).

In particular -

NB - the government also advises today that it is working closely with the devolved administrations on how the scheme is rolled out across the UK and, in Council Tax Information Letter 9/2022, confirms that SI.No.439/2022  and the Collection Fund (Council Tax Reductions) (England) Directions 2022 ensure that the Homes for Ukraine Scheme does not affect a sponsor’s council tax status.
