In April 2013, council tax benefit was abolished and in its place, the government required each council to design and implement its own scheme of council tax support. Schemes are now funded through business rates retention. Councils have adapted admirably to the new regime, and it has quickly become part of the local government finance landscape. This report details some of the challenges councils have faced along the way, as well as suggesting some improvements for the future.
