90% of eligible households have now received their Council Tax rebate

Ashfield District Council has now paid the £150 Council Tax rebate to over 47,000 eligible households.

The payments totalling £7.1million have been made to residents in Bands A-D.

A secure online form is now live on the Council’s website for those who don’t pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit and is the quickest way to receive their rebate payment. Residents will need to enter their bank details and other information to verify their identity. This form must be completed accurately and in full to avoid any delays in receiving the rebate into bank accounts.

Cllr David Martin, Cabinet Member for Finance said:

“We have now processed 84% of payments to eligible households and the remaining 10% will be processed as quickly as we can. The Revenues and Benefits Team have worked incredibly hard to process over 47,000 rebates.
“We are experiencing delays in processing payments due to incomplete and incorrect online forms being submitted. In order for us to have bank details externally verified, the form must be completed in full and with correct information. These are Government rules set to fraudulent claims. If residents haven’t filled out their bank details on the form yet, we urge them to complete it today.
“This has been an enormous undertaking by the Council. We’d like to thank residents for their patience whilst we process the remaining rebates.”
