Last updated: 5 December 2022

On 3 February 2022, the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer outlined The Energy Bills Rebate package, which includes the following measures:

  • The Energy Bills Rebate - a GBP 200 reduction in domestic electricity customers’ bills from October 2022 in Great Britain. This will be recouped through domestic energy bills over five years from 2023, up to a maximum annual value of £40 per domestic customer. [This policy was replaced by the increased Energy Bill Support Scheme (EBSS) on 1st April 2022]

  • Council Tax Rebate – a GBP 150 Council Tax Rebate payment for all households that are liable for Council Tax in Bands A-D in England.

  • GBP 144 million discretionary funding for Local Authorities in England to support households not eligible for the core Council Tax Rebate scheme.
