New amendments to council tax demand notices and reduction schemes in England

posted on 14 February 2022, updated on 14 February 2022

Made on 10 February 2022 and coming into force on 12 February 2022, these updates amend the 2011 regulations to provide that demand notices relating to liability to pay council tax for 1st April 2022 in respect of dwellings in valuation bands A to D must contain prescribed information in relation to the government's rebate scheme to provide financial support in respect of energy bills (the Energy Rebate Scheme 2022).

The amending regulation also provides that billing authorities' schemes must include provision that any payments made under the Energy Rebate Scheme 2022 are not to be taken into account in determining council tax reductions.
