Council Tax Rebate grant

West Suffolk Council is working with Anglia Revenues Partnership to administer the Government Council Tax Rebate Grant to eligible residents. This money is intended as a contribution to help households with the rising cost of energy bills.


The grant of £150 is for households in bands A to D who are liable for Council Tax on 1 April 2022. It includes:

  • Those whose bill is £0 due to an existing award of Council Tax support
  • Certain exempt dwellings
  • But not empty or second homes.

When and how people will receive payment

People who already pay Council Tax by Direct Debit (see note below about new Direct Debit arrangements) will get the grant paid automatically into their bank account. We estimate this will be by the end of April.

People who have signed up to Direct Debit on or after 3 February 2022 won’t receive the grant until May as we have to take their first Council Tax payment using those new Direct Debit details to verify their account. If the Direct Debit is not successful, we will follow the process immediately below.

People who don’t pay by Direct Debit will receive a letter from Anglia Revenues Partnership about how they can have the rebate grant paid into their bank account. This will be through an online claim form.

There will be a discretionary scheme. West Suffolk Council has also received £270,300 to administer discretionary grants to those who we and our partner organisations identify as vulnerable and likely to be the most impacted by rising energy prices and the increased cost of living. This will include residents in band E-H properties who for Council Tax purposes are considered to be ‘severely mentally impaired’ and those who receive a Disability Reduction or Local Council Tax Reduction, and for people in hardship. We will update you when this is ready.

We are working with Anglia Revenues Partnership to ensure the claim forms are in place as soon as is possible and are simple to use.
