Discretionary Council Tax Energy Rebate Applications

Who will be eligible to apply for the Discretionary Council Tax Energy Rebate payment?

The application process will be restricted to residents of properties that have been excluded from the core scheme due to them not being liable for Council Tax. This could include applicants who are directly responsible for energy costs but:

  • they became liable for payment of Council Tax to Sefton Council on or after 2nd April 2022 e.g. they are a first time buyer

Evidence of occupation and direct payment of energy costs will need to be provided in support of an application.

To complete the form you will need:

  • Tenancy Agreement/Rent Statement or Completion Statement
  • Energy Bill
  • Bank Sort Code
  • Bank Account number
  • Bank Account name

Submit an application

We will check the details you submit and contact you if we need any more information.
