Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme (TBESS)

November 09, 2022

The scheme will be open to businesses that:

  • are tax compliant
  •  carry on a Case I trade or Case II profession (including certain charities and approved sporting bodies in relation to certain income), and
  • have experienced a significant increase of 50 per cent or more in their natural gas and electricity average unit price between the relevant bill period in 2022 and the corresponding reference period in 2021.

Revenue will administer the scheme. Information on the scheme is contained in the TBESS guidelines. More detailed information will be published in the coming weeks, including on how businesses can submit claims via an online portal.
