If you are the only person over 18 years old who lives in your home, you may be entitled to a discount of 25 percent.

Apply for Single Person Discount (SPD)

Your full Council Tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a property. If you are the only person over 18 years old who lives in your home, you may be entitled to a discount of 25 percent

How to apply for a discount

To apply for a discount you will need to create or log in to a Staffs Moorlands online account. If you don't have one already, click the button below and register. If you already have an account with us you can also log in here.

Once you're registered go to 'Submit a request' and select the Single Person Discount form.

Tracking the progress of your application

When you have submitted your application through your online account, you will be able to track it from start to finish. We will contact you (usually via email), if we need any further information, and to let you know the progress of your application. We aim to process discounts / exemptions within 21 working days.

You will be able to view any changes to your council tax online, via your account, once your discount has been processed.

If someone has passed away

Please use the form below to let us know. If you are now the only adult living in the property you will be entitled to a 25% discount.

Tell us about a change

If you no longer qualify for a single person discount you need to let us know.

Checks on households claiming SPD

We are currently carrying out residency checks using data matching technology to validate legitimate SPD claims. Any discounts that are being claimed in error, or fraudulently, will be identified and removed.

If you have received a Single Person Discount review, you are still the only adult over 18 resident in your property, and wish to apply for a continuation of your 25% single person discount. Please complete the form below.

If you don't tell us about a change, you may have to pay a fine of £70.
