Empty Property Owned by a Charity

If you are a registered charity that owns an unoccupied property, you may be exempt from Council Tax.

This exemption applies for a maximum period of six months, depending on the date the property became unoccupied.

The property can be furnished or unfurnished under this exemption.

The property must have been previously occupied for the purposes of the charity; a list of the charities objectives will be required to verify this. Read and complete the  Class B Application (PDF) [496KB]

Please return completed forms either by email: or by post to Council Tax, South Holland District Council, Council Offices, Priory Road, Spalding, Lincs, PE11 2XE.

If you qualify for the Council Tax exemption you must tell us within 21 days if there is a change that might affect it. We can impose a £70 penalty if you do not tell us about a change.  Keep us informed of changes on or by calling 01775 761161 and select Council Tax.
