    Dear all

    Is it possible that a Russian girlfriend/partner who entered the UK back to 2010 on a six-month visitor’s visa is still considered by the UK Border Agency to have no status in the UK;even though she has since married a British citizen.

    The reason for the question is that our council tax payer is stating that he should still be liable to receive a single persons discount as his now Russian wife has no status in the UK.

    I believe that if we request details of her passport/visa we should be able to identify if she has indefinite leave to remain, which I believe will be the case under the circumstances; but who knows.

    I am however still unsure as to what the legalitys are in respect of CTAX and a single persons discount especially prior to the marriage. Are we able to remove a single persons discount just because another adult is resident or is there something that will prevent its removal??????? Has anyone had a similar case or are you able to give me advice in respect of this matter?

    Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read and respond.

    Kind regards

    I’m fairly certain that the immigration position is irrelevant and that, as more than one adult present, no SPD whould be awarded. (The only disregarded adults are those set out as such in ctax regs e.g. SMI/students/carers.)

    Many thanks Andy for your response. I am so glad that on occasion the answer is more simpler than I expected.

    Kind regards
