Dealing with Council Tax as a student

Properties occupied by full time students do not have to pay council tax.  Roseworth have an agreement with Newcastle City Council whereby we will contact them on your behalf and register your name and student number making you exempt from paying. The council may contact you direct to ask for proof of student status and you will have to present a Student Certificate.

 

Under the terms of Newcastle City Council as full time student is classed as someone that is on a full time course that lasts at least 1 academic year, requires attendance for at least 24 weeks in each academic year and normally requires an average of 21 hours a week study.
