Local Government Finance Act 2012 – Council Tax Reforms

Summary

The Local Government Finance Act 2012 brings in arrangements for localised council tax support schemes to replace council tax benefit from April 2013.

It also provides local authorities flexibility on the council tax that can be charged on empty homes and provides them with the freedom to publish council tax information on-line.

This briefing will be of interest to local authority cabinet and elected members and officers with an interest in finance, housing, regeneration and social care and welfare. It will be followed by a second detailed briefing on the Act focusing on the reform of business rates.
