Fenland District Council is preparing to support the roll-out of a government-funded tax rebate that is being issued in response to soaring energy prices.

The Government has announced that an Energy Bill Rebate (payment) will be provided to households in England in April 2022 to help protect residents from rising energy costs. This includes a one-off payment of £150 to most households in Council Tax bands A-D. This won't have to be repaid.

The rebate will be payable to households in bands A-D in England which are liable for Council Tax on 1 April 2022. This includes those whose bill is £0 owing to an existing award of Council Tax support, as well as to certain exempt dwellings.

If you don't know which band your property is in, look on your latest Council Tax bill or Check your council tax band online - GOV.UK. Council Tax bills for 2022/23 will be delivered in the second week of March 2022.

The rebate will not be payable in respect of empty or second homes.

When will I receive this payment?

We expect that most people who pay Council Tax by Direct Debit will receive this money automatically in April. The payment will usually be made to the bank account from which the Direct Debit is taken. If you haven't already signed up to pay Council Tax by Direct Debit, you can do so online today.

For those who do not pay by Direct Debit, we expect to be ready to start processing payments in April. We will contact you separately as soon as we know how and when any payment will be issued.

Further details will be available on this page once we receive government guidance.

The £150 rebate will not be shown on your bill nor will it be credited to your Council Tax account.
