Harlow Council continue £150 energy rebate payments

Harlow Council / Sat 7th May 2022 am31 10:06am

TO date Harlow Council has paid out over £2.8 million to just under 19,000 households who paid their April Council Tax instalment by Direct Debit.

The government’s £150 energy rebate is for most households in Council Tax bands A to D and is in addition to Harlow Council’s £50 reduction in Council Tax. This energy rebate is also different to the £200 energy bill discount which will be paid in October and come off energy bills.

Yesterday (3 May 2022) the council made payments totalling £161,250 to a further 1,075 households who paid their council tax by Direct Debit in April. These payments will take three working days to clear in bank accounts.

On Friday 29 April payments totalling £356,700 were made to 2,378 households who paid their Council tax by Direct Debit on 25 April 2022.

On Thursday 28 April we made payments totalling £638,250 were made to 4,255 households who paid their Council Tax by Direct Debit on 8 and 15 April 2022.

On Wednesday 27 April we made payments totalling £1,657,350.00 were made to 11,049 households who paid their Council Tax by Direct Debit on 1 April 2022.

For those eligible households who pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit, the energy rebate scheme will continue running into this month. As payments are made, residents eligible for the rebate will receive a letter.

For those households who do not pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit, but are eligible for the energy rebate, a letter will be sent out inviting them to complete an online form. The council is sending a letter rather than an email to prevent fraud. For residents who are not online or not technology confident, the council will offer an alternative process. It is expected that these letters will be sent out during May.

Work also continues on an eligibility criteria for a discretionary energy rebate scheme (for some households in Council Tax bands E to H). The council will keep residents updated on this.

Be wary of energy rebate scams

The council will not call residents or email to ask for bank details, if a resident does receive such a call or email, they should not provide their bank details, instead they should report it to actionfraud.police.uk or call 0300 123 2040.
