The government’s council tax energy rebate is a £150 non-repayable rebate for households in England in council tax bands A to D. It is to help households with rising energy bills in 2022 to 2023.

If you pay by direct debit

If you pay your council tax by direct debit and are responsible for household fuel bills, the rebate will automatically be paid into your bank account by the end of April.

If you don't pay by direct debit

If you don’t pay by direct debit, eligible residents must complete our online form to provide their bank details.

The form will be available on our Council Tax Energy Rebate page from Monday 4 April and payments will start to be made during May.

Discretionary scheme

Eligibility for the discretionary scheme, available to support households in other council tax bands, is still being determined and information will be published in due course.
