This will be payable to all customers even if they don't pay Council Tax because they are in receipt of local council tax support.
There will be a discretionary fund available for those in bands E and above and are on Means Tested benefits. If this applies to you, you should contact your Local Authority for details on how to apply.
What you need to do:
- If you already pay by Direct Debit you don’t need to do anything. Councils will automatically credit your bank account from April
- If you don’t currently pay by Direct Debit it’s a good idea to set it up with your Local Authority before the end of March so you receive the rebate automatically.
- If you don’t pay Council Tax or don't wish to set up a Direct Debit you will be written to asking for payment details. You need to respond to the letter to get the rebate.
