“qualifying person” means a person who is liable for the council tax in respect of a dwelling on a particular day, whether or not jointly with any other person, or who would be liable for the council tax in respect of a dwelling on a particular day if that dwelling did not fall within Class O of the Council Tax (Exempt Dwellings) Order 1992(4);.

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in accordance with section 12 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992. These Regulations amend certain provisions of the Council Tax (Prescribed Classes of Dwellings) (Wales) Regulations 1998 to provide that armed forces personnel who are required to live in accommodation provided by the Ministry of Defence to perform the duties of their office come within the definition of those with job-related dwellings. This means that where those persons also have a second home in Wales for which they are liable to pay council tax, the billing authority for the area within which the second home is situated is prevented from reducing the discount on that dwelling from 50%.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument, as it has no impact on the costs of businesses, charities or voluntary bodies.

(2)

These functions were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672) and are now vested in the Welsh Ministers by virtue of paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 (c. 32).
