Firms ‘should act now’ on energy-bills scheme

Revenue has warned businesses to act now to ensure that they receive any money due to them under a scheme aimed at helping firms with their energy bills.

The tax body has issued a reminder that the deadline to submit claims for the Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme (TBESS) is 30 September 2023.

Businesses can make claims for bills from periods starting from 1 September 2022 to 31 July 2023.

Incomplete registrations

Revenue said that there were currently a number of incomplete registrations and claims on its Revenue Online Service (ROS) for the scheme.

TBESS is a two-step process, with registration being a necessary first step for access to the scheme, followed by claim submission.

The tax body has reminded firms that they need to fully complete the registration and claims processes to access TBESS money that may be due to them.

“As the facility will not be available after the end of this month, this needs to be done now,” it said, adding that businesses should allow enough time this month to complete these processes, giving ample time for registrations to be processed so that claims are fully submitted by the deadline date.

Almost 30,500 businesses had registered for TBESS by 9 September, with more than 56,000 claims worth €129 million approved.

The TBESS claim portal can be accessed via the e-Repayments system in ROS.
