FOI Request Minimum Income Floor for Council Tax Reduction

Request 101001739859

I am looking to establish the Council's policy regarding the use of the "minimum income floor" for the purposes of calculating Council Tax Reduction for those who are self employed.

Please provide details of the guidance provided to a) applicants and b) staff administering claims. If this is already publicly available, please provide a link to the web page this information is provided.

For details of what I am referring to, please see this article: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/minimum-income-floor-council-tax_uk_5a7dda34e4b044b3821cf067

Response 26-02-2018

The Moray Council does not use a 'minimum income floor' for the purposes of calculating Council Tax Reduction for self-employed earners. Council Tax Reduction regulations are set by the Scottish Government for all authorities in Scotland.
