£150 Council Tax energy rebate

Introduction

The Chancellor recently announced a £150 energy rebate for most households in Council Tax bands A to D (occupied properties) and some households in Council Tax bands E to H.

The rebate:

  • is only payable to the person liable for Council Tax (one person per household)
  • is a one-off grant that does not need to be paid back
  • will not effect any Council Tax payments going forward and will not appear on your bill

There is sufficient funding available for all eligible properties. If you have not yet received your rebate and you are in bands A to D, we will be issuing a letter in August with a voucher for you to use at the post office.

Additional support

If you are struggling or need support with food, fuel or bills, see what additional support is available through the Helping Hand scheme.

Check your Council Tax band

To know if you are eligible, you will first need to check your Council Tax band.

Empty properties and second homes

A property that has no permanent resident and is someone’s second home will not be eligible.

An unoccupied property (for the purposes of calculating Council Tax) will not be eligible.
