About the council tax rebate, who can get it and what you need to do.

The government announced a council tax rebate of £150 for households living in properties in council tax bands A to D on 1 April 2022.

A discretionary fund was also allocated as part of the scheme and will support households living in Bristol:

  • in bands E to H
  • in bands A to D who are not eligible for the rebate

The 2022 Council Tax Energy Rebate Schemes both Mandatory and Discretionary have now both closed in line with Government deadlines.

Mandatory awards of £150.00 may still appear on your Council Tax with a refund in progress. These are primarily being refunded by cheque, but if you have a bank account you wish for us to credit, please inform us using our Council tax enquiry form.

Successful Discretionary awards will be paid to the bank account supplied at the time of application.
