Government Electricity Credit FAQs

What is the implication in the reduction in the VAT on the Electricity costs emergency benefits scheme?

VAT has been reduced from 13.5% to 9% on gas and electricity bills from the start of May until the end of October as part of the suite of measures introduced in the National Energy Security Framework.

In line with Ireland’s VAT legislation, the rate of VAT that is applicable is the rate in force at the time of issuing of the bill.

The credit of €176.22 as set out in Section 5(2) of the Electricity Costs (Domestic Electricity Accounts) Emergency Measures Act 2022, is being made to each domestic electricity account from April and remains the same.
