Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
The Council Tax (Additional Provisions for Discount Disregards) Regulations 1992 provide for the conditions to be fulfilled where a care worker is to be disregarded for the purposes of discount, which has the effect of reducing the amount of council tax payable in respect of a dwelling in which he is resident. One of those conditions is that he is paid no more than a specified weekly amount. Regulation 2 raises this amount from £30 to £36.
