Energy Bill Rebate payments now processed for 1st April direct debit payers

Released:

Solihull Council has now processed the recently announced Energy Bill Rebate to the first group of residents in the borough.

If you are in Council Tax Bands A-D (or in Band E and qualify for the disabled band reduction) and paid your Council Tax by Direct Debit on Friday 1 April 2022 your Energy Bill Rebate has now been processed. This will show in your bank account from Wednesday 20th April onwards (due to Easter bank holidays).

If you are in Council Tax Bands A-D (or in Band E and qualify for the disabled band reduction) and due to pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit on Friday 15 April 2022, your Energy Bill Rebate will be processed in the week beginning Monday 25 April 2022. Please allow 3-5 working days from this date for the money to appear in your account. For further information, see our Energy Rebate FAQs.

If you do not pay via Direct Debit or are due to start paying by Direct Debit in May 2022 you will receive a letter shortly inviting you to apply for the Energy Bill Rebate. Further details of the Energy Rebate Scheme can be found here.

Households not eligible for this scheme may still be eligible for the Discretionary Scheme. Please continue to check our website for further details.
