All households in Buckinghamshire who were eligible to receive a council tax rebate earlier this year, have now received their refund.

Bucks Council confirmed that the energy rebates available for homes in bands A to D have all been paid.

Rebates were authorised by the Government with local authorities tasked with distributing the refunds.

A total of 73,847 eligible Bucks households who make their council tax payments by direct debit have received their £150 rebate. In addition, 46,796 householders who pay by cash or standing order were asked to provide their bank details to enable payment. All of these households have either provided their details and been paid or have had a voucher sent to them to cash at a post office.

Councillor John Chilver said: “We know how welcome this rebate has been to many of our residents and we are pleased to have been able to successfully refund 100% of those who have been identified as being eligible according to our records. With the cost of living continuing to rise we are keen to do all we can to help our communities through this crisis. We await direction from central government on what other measures may be put into place to offer additional support.

“I would like to remind people who have received vouchers, don't forget to take them to the post office so you can exchange them for your cash refund.”
