£150 energy rebate

In February, the Government announced that all households in council tax bands A to D are entitled to a one-off council tax energy rebate payment of £150. You do not have to pay this back.

The quickest way to receive your rebate

If you pay your council tax by direct debit, Wiltshire Council will use your bank
details to pay the rebate straight in to your account. You do not need to do anything.

Look out for a letter if you don’t pay your council tax by direct debit

If you are eligible for the energy rebate but do not pay your council tax by direct
debit, you will receive a letter through the post inviting you to submit your bank
details via the Wiltshire Council website. This will ensure the rebate can be paid into
your bank account. You do not need to call us; we will write to you in early May.

If you do not pay council tax

There are some households in Wiltshire that do not pay council tax because they
receive a council tax reduction. We will be writing to these households and inviting
them to provide their bank details so that the energy rebate can be paid to them.

Properties in council tax bands E – H

The Government has given the council a discretionary fund to help households on
low incomes who live in properties in bands E-H. Visit the Wiltshire Council website
for further information about the scheme.

Updates on the rebate and discretionary funding will be posted on the Wiltshire
Council website at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/council-tax-energy-rebate
