Council Tax energy rebate

Households in council tax bands A to D will receive the £150 council tax rebate. However, second homes or empty properties will not benefit. The £150 rebate will not need to be repaid.

The energy rebate is a government payment based on council tax data and is not a rebate to the council tax bill.

Paying by Direct Debit

We have issued payments to nearly 86,000 customers.

A further 4,000 Council Tax accounts need to be reviewed. By 31 July, we will either pay these or send out a letter requesting further information.

If you pay by Direct Debit and have not received payment or a letter from us by 28 August, and believe you are eligible, please contact us from 30 August so that we can investigate.

Not paying by Direct Debit

We contacted customers by letter to provide details on our online form. These details will then be verified so that we can make a payment. By 1 July 2022, we issued all 40,000 letters.

Window closed

The window to let us know your bank details has now closed. If you didn't complete the form on time, we will credit your council tax account directly with the £150 to ensure you do not miss out.

If you have not received a letter, you should contact us so that we can investigate. If you have received a letter but no payment or a credit to your council tax account, you should contact us from 1 September as payments may take time to process due to the volume and validation required.

As of 12 July we have received approximately 24,000 applications and paid approximately 16,000.

Not eligible

We will receive extra funding to provide support to vulnerable households who may not qualify for the £150 council tax rebate.

This includes people on low incomes in council tax bands E to H.

Details will be available soon.

Energy bills support scheme (£400)

From October, everyone's energy bill will be reduced by £400. The discount will be made automatically by your energy supplier and not administered by North Northamptonshire Council.

Cost of Living Payment

If you claim benefits and think you are entitled to a Cost of Living Payment, you don't need to do anything. This payment is administered automatically by the Government's Department for Work and Pensions (not North Northamptonshire Council).
