The Energy Bill Relief Scheme has been announced to help small businesses and provide an equivalent level of support with their energy bills as individuals. The scheme will start on 1 October 2022 and will run until 31 March 2023.
The scheme will give price reductions on electricity and gas for non-domestic customers, including:
voluntary sector organisations like charities
public sector organisations like schools, hospitals, and care homes
Most businesses will be eligible, including those on fixed price contracts, whether existing since April 2022 or new, and those on variable tariffs.
The discounts will be applied automatically to your bills and you don’t need to do anything.
Discussions of how the scheme is going to work are still in motion, therefore you should start seeing the discount from November 2022, and bills for October will be backdated.
