Council Tax rebate to help with increased home energy costs
Last updated: 24 May 2022
The government announced on 3 February 2022 measures to help protect millions of households from rising energy costs in 2022 to 2023.
These measures include a one-off £150 non-repayable rebate for households in England in council tax bands A to D, known as the Council Tax Rebate. This is a payment of £150 per household and not a reduction off your bill. Funding has also been provided for councils to operate a Discretionary Scheme to support households that do not qualify for the Council Tax Rebate.
You can view the Council Tax rebate factsheet on the GOV.UK website, that has been provided by the government.
Council Tax Rebate Bands A to D
(This includes property that is valued in band E but has an alternative valuation band of band D, as a result of the disabled band reduction scheme).
Councils have been set a deadline to ensure all payments are made by 30 September 2022.
Payment Update – We are currently processing payments for households on direct debit in April and where we have been able to verify payment details, anticipate the majority will receive their payment by 27 May 2022.
Payment processing for households not on direct debit will start on Wednesday 25 May 2022 with the first payments expected to reach bank accounts on Monday 30 May 2022.
We will continue to process payments and will contact you if we have not been able to verify your payment details.
When the payment is made, your bank statement will show £150 received from B’ham City Council.
We are aiming to make payments as quickly as possible. Please do not contact us to chase payment as further updates will be given on progress.
