Councils clarify process for Council Tax rebates

Following the government’s announcement that most households in England in Council Tax Bands A to D will receive a £150 energy rebate payment, Warwick and Stratford on Avon District Councils are putting all necessary procedures in place to ensure that those who are eligible receive their one-off payment well ahead of the September deadline.

The Councils’ Revenues team who are administering the scheme expect the majority of households who pay by Direct Debit to start receiving their payment directly into their bank accounts during April and May. Eligible residents who do not pay by Direct Debit will be contacted with the necessary information to make their claim for the rebate.

The Councils have set up a website page with detailed information on the rebate and the forthcoming discretionary scheme which will be updated regularly. There is also a leaflet to signpost residents to government and local support packages, as well as organisations that are able to offer advice during these difficult times.
