Council tax discounts and second homes

In Scotland, local authorities have the power to reduce the discount offered on furnished second homes from 50% to just 10%.

In England and Wales, authorities have discretion to reduce the discount below 50% or to offer no discount at all.

Properties that have been unoccupied and substantially unfurnished for more than two years may not qualify for a discount and the council tax may be increased by up to 50%.
