Council Tax SMI disregard and backdating

Quote

LGFA92 represented the appellant in a successful claim regarding the backdating of a 25% SMI discount.

Having heard the representations made by both parties the valuation tribunal considered that the local authority had wrongly applied the Limitation Act 1980 when they restricted the discount to a 6 year period of backdating.

Good to see the Tribunal is holding councils to their job.

Not enough people know about the SMI.

Sometimes it is just a battle with the council and the tribunal to get them to listen.

My council have refused to backdate and said it was due to the Arca case. What can I do next about it ?
