Maternity parental or adoption leave

Although we don’t offer a specific discount for those on maternity, parental or adoption leave, if your income falls below £32,000 you can apply for income discount .

Your maternity, parental or adoption leave might span two registration years meaning your income doesn’t fall below the £32,000 threshold either year but does across a 12 month period.

For example:

Your annual retention fee due date is 1 August 2022.

Your maternity, parental or adoption leave is from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022.

In this situation, please apply for income discount  and choose one of the annual retention fee periods that fall into your leave. In the example above, this means you could apply for discount for one of the annual retention fee years that falls into your period of leave, in this case 2021–22 or 2022–23.
