UK - Paying council tax if a student is living with a full time worker?

We Answered:

The following information is from the Directgov website.

Who is responsible for paying the bill?
There's one Council Tax bill for each home. Usually the person living in the property has to pay the bill. Spouses and partners who live together are both responsible for paying the bill.

The person at the top or nearest to the top of the following list has to pay the bill:
• lives in the property and owns it
• lives in the property and has a lease (this includes 'assured tenants' under the Housing Act 1988)
• lives in the property and is a 'statutory' or 'secure' tenant
• lives in the property and isn't a tenant but has permission to live there
• lives in the property (for example a squatter)
• has a lease of six months or more on the property, but doesn't live there
• owns the property but doesn't live there

You can't be responsible for paying the bill if you're under age 18.
If you're still unsure about who is responsible for paying the bill, you can contact your local council and they'll be able to help.

You may be able to reduce your bill if:
• the property is empty
• only one adult lives there
• you are disabled
• you are a student
• you are a student nurse
If you're on a low income you may qualify for Council Tax Benefit.
Your full Council Tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a home. If only one adult lives in a home (as their main home), the Council Tax is reduced by 25 per cent. The bill doesn't increase if there are more than two adults in the home.
Certain people aren't counted when working out the number of adults who live in your home. If the property isn't the main home of the people living there, then a discount may also apply.
You can find out about discounts and people who aren't counted towards an assessment of Council Tax in sections 10 to 13 of the leaflet 'Council Tax - a guide to your bill'. Also, some dwellings may be exempt from Council Tax. You can check the details of what sort of dwellings are exempt in sections 14 to 17 of the leaflet 'Council Tax - a guide to your bill'.

People in the following groups do not count towards the number of adults resident in a dwelling:

people under 18 years of age
full-time students: this includes student nurses, apprentices and Youth Training trainees
patients permanently resident in hospitals and care homes
people who are severely mentally impaired
people staying in certain hostels or night shelters
18 and 19 year olds who are at or have just left school
careworkers working for low pay, usually for charities
people caring for someone with a disability who is not a spouse, partner, or child under 18
members of visiting forces and certain international institutions
members of religious communities (monks and nuns)
people in prison (except those in prison for nonpayment of Council Tax or a fine)
people entitled to diplomatic privileges

So your boyfriend should get a 25% discount because, even if you move in, you are not counted for CT purposes if you are a full-time student. If you are only a part-time student then you might be treated differently.
Your local council can give you all the information you need before you make a decision.

Gloria Said:

My friend who is a student urgently needs a job, she lives in Glasgow,Scotland. What can she do to get a job?

We Answered:

Go to the local recruitment agencies - there should be loads in Glasgow -OK I know not everyone is a fan but they have jobs available always usually if you don't mind what you do! Check out the usual job sites - monster, etc, and also leaf through the local papers. It's definitely worth having a walk up and down through town and checking out shop windows for adverts for staff in shops etc or actually on the noticeboards of newsagents etc - they often advertise. Hope your friend gets a job soon!

David Said:

What kind of job can a college student get in Scotland?

We Answered:

The main jobs in Scotland are fishing, farming and the oil industry, which obviously are not the sort of job you are looking for.
Other than menial work, it is difficult for students to find jobs in Scotland . There is a recession, and many people have been made redundant. Obviously they snap up any job that goes and there are many applicants for the regular better paid ones.
Other than waiting jobs in restaurants or pubs, portering or cleaner in hotels, cleaning offices after working hours, dustcart and recycling collections, assistant carer in old folks homes, or perhaps some childminding/ au pairing , there are relatively few opportunities for students.

Dianne Said:

I am a student at university and about to accept two part time jobs in Scotland - will I be taxed at all?

We Answered:

The annual tax exemption is £6475. Anything you earn above this is taxable at 20%.

Marian Said:

Is Edinburgh Scotland a good place to live?

We Answered:

It regularly comes top of the quality of life studies into UK cities. Not cheap though mind. It is a capital city after all remember. You will need to check out the UK immigration requirements on the UK government websites
