Council Tax Rebate Scheme

On 3rd February 2022, Government announced the introduction of a 150 non-repayable rebate for households in England in council tax bands A to D, known as the Council Tax Rebate.

To provide some immediate relief for these rising costs, while targeting those most likely to require support, billing authorities have been asked to provide a 150 one-off payment to a liable council tax payer (or a person who would otherwise be liable where the property is exempt) for every household that occupies a property which meets the scheme criteria.

Further information can be found on the Government's website:

Funding was also provided to local authorities to design their own discretionary scheme. Full details of discretionary scheme eligibility for South Cambridgeshire District Council can be found on our energy rebate page.

This form is provided to capture the information required by the Council to verify and make these rebate payments. Where a rebate payment is issued, the person/s that according to the Council's records were the taxpayer in respect of the dwelling on 1 April 2022 is eligible to receive the rebate. Where the Council has reason to believe that the information that we hold about the taxpayer is inaccurate we may withhold or recover the payment.

Before making payments we must carry out checks to ensure that the details provided are correct. In order to assist this process, you will need to have your council tax account reference and the exact name details of an account holder as they appear on a recent bill. We will ask for your date of birth and we will need a copy of your latest bank account statement to assist with verification checks. Payments will be made by BACS to your bank account once all checks are complete.
