Local Government Finance Act 2012

Territorial Application: Wales

26.The Act extends to England and Wales. New section 13A(1)(b) which will be inserted into the LGFA 1992 by section 10 provides for council tax reduction schemes in Wales. New section 13A(4) of the LGFA 1992 provides powers for Welsh Ministers to make regulations in relation to council tax reduction schemes, and new Schedule 1B, which is inserted into the LGFA 1992 by Schedule 4 to the Act, contains further provisions about regulations that may be made under new section 13A(4). New section 13A(1)(c), also inserted by section 10, will apply to both England and Wales, and does not alter the legal position in relation to Wales. Schedule 3 to the Act amends Schedule 8 to the LGFA 1988 so that it applies only to Wales.

27.Sections 7, 8, 9, 14, 16 and 17 also apply to Wales.
