Electricity bill relief for small businesses

Around 205,000 small businesses will receive a $650 rebate on their electricity bill in 2023–24, to be funded by the Queensland and Australian Governments under the Energy Bill Relief Fund.

For most small businesses, the rebate will be automatically credited to electricity bills on a quarterly basis commencing from July 2023. Exact timing will depend on retailers' system requirements and individual billing cycles.

Embedded network arrangements

Small business tenants who get their electricity through a privately owned embedded network, and are billed by their landlord, property manager/operator or other entity (exempt seller) are also eligible for the rebate.

These businesses will see the rebate credited to their bills by relevant exempt seller or electricity billing company.

Exempt sellers need to lodge a claim (using Form 533) with their electricity retailer.
