Council Tax Energy Rebate

Most households in Council Tax bands A - D who were liable for Council Tax on 1 April 2022 have received a one-off upfront energy rebate of £150. This Council Tax Energy Rebate is to help households with rising energy costs.

If you pay your Council Tax by direct debit

We will have made all payments direct to bank accounts by the end of June 2022.

Please be aware that in a small number of cases, we have been unable to make payments direct to bank accounts. This includes households who have recently been made liable for Council Tax from a date before 1 April 2022. If this includes you, please do not contact us as we will send you a £150 voucher that you can redeem at the Post Office.

If you do not pay your Council Tax by direct debit

We will have sent you a voucher which you can take to any Post Office and cash for £150.  The voucher will tell you what type of identification you need to take with you to cash it and what you can do if you are unable to visit the Post Office yourself.

Vouchers have been sent throughout June and we aim to have sent all of them by July.

Please do not contact us if you have not received your voucher, it’s on its way.

Further details around the eligibility criteria for the Council Tax Energy Rebate can be found on the GOV.UK website.

Customers who do not automatically qualify

We are inviting applications to the Discretionary Energy Rebate Scheme from 1 July 2022 for those who do not automatically qualify for the Council Tax Energy Rebate Scheme.

If your household does not get a council tax bill but pays for energy, you could be eligible for a Discretionary Energy Rebate Payment of up to £150.

Only one payment will be made per property. Applications must be submitted by 31 July 2022. Find out if you could qualify and how to apply on the Apply for a Discretionary Energy Rebate Payment page.
