Council Tax Energy Rebate - £150

Who qualifies?

There is a £150 council tax rebate for households in council tax bands A to D, which was announced in February 2022, to help towards energy bills.

How will it be paid?

The timing of these payments and the method of payments will depend upon your local council. For most councils, tenants who make payments of Council Tax by direct debit will receive the rebate direct into their bank accounts and most councils have started making payments from May 2022.

If you do not pay your Council Tax by direct debit, you'll still receive a rebate but it may take longer. Please check your council website for details of how payments will be made.
