Revenue has announced an extension to their deadline for businesses to submit claims under the Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme (TBESS) for September.
The deadline for receipt of submissions for the September 2022 period which had been set at January 31st will now extend into the month of February. No concrete date has been announced at this point.
This extension will allow businesses who had been finding the previous deadline challenging, some much needed extra time to ensure they have submitted their claim
Collector-General, Joe Howley , was quoted as saying "Businesses who have registered for TBESS and who are eligible, are encouraged to access the claims portal via the eRepayments system on Revenue’s Online Service (ROS) and make a claim at the earliest opportunity,"
While take up of the scheme to date appears to have been lower than anticipated, many hope this revised deadline will encourage more businesses to consider submitting a claim.
The scheme was initially announced in Budget 2023 as a measure to help off-set the ongoing rise in electricity and gas prices. TBESS offers businesses the opportunity to claim back 40% of the increase in their electricity or gas bills for eligible businesses.
Businesses use their electricity and gas bills to complete the process which will enable them claim up to €10,000 per month depending on their energy usage and costs.
