Sevenoaks District Council (SDC) will be making payments to eligible residents, who pay their council tax (Bands A to D) by direct debit, during next week. The guidance relating to the rebate scheme applies to those liable for the council tax from April 2022, in addition the rebate should only be payable once the first payment, or installment, of council tax has been made in relation to this financial year.

As those circumstances are now being met, SDC aim to get payments out to everyone that is eligible (and pays council tax by direct debit) during May.

For those council tax payers that do not pay by direct debit, SDC will begin contacting them from 23 May with details about how to claim.

Information for residents is available on the council website at
