Just a little heads-up for everyone in Council Tax bands A-D (taken from the Brent Council website):
From 1 April 2022, the energy price cap will rise and many households will struggle to pay higher energy bills and to heat their homes.
To help households with rising energy costs, the Government has announced a £150 Council Tax rebate (payment) for households in bands A to D.
Who will receive this £150 payment (rebate)?
Properties in bands A to D
Most households in Council Tax bands A to D will qualify for a payment (rebate) of £150 from April 2022. The council will make a payment to households. This won’t have to be repaid.
If you pay less than £150 Council Tax, or you receive single person discount, or do not pay because you receive Council Tax support, you will still be entitled to the payment.
The payment will not be made for empty or second homes. It must be your main residence to get the money. If you don’t know which band your property is in, look on your latest bill or check your Council Tax band online.
