Levy on VAT for energy bills [November - December 2022]

Last updated: 5 December 2022

The 2023 central budget includes an energy price cap for households and a subset of SMEs. This is brought forward from 1 January 2023 to 1 November 2022. Hence, in November and December 2022, all households receive a fixed discount of EUR 190 per month through a VAT reduction settled via the energy suppliers.

This is budgeted through an amendment to the 2022 central government budget via the 9th Incidental Supplementary Budget (EZK) concerning the price cap.
