The Minister for Finance has announced a number of enhancements to the Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme (TBESS), including the extension of the scheme beyond the end of February 2023.

The TBESS guidelines have been updated to reflect these changes.
Proposed changes to the TBESS, subject to State aid approval
A number of other proposed enhancements to the scheme are subject to State aid approval. These are as follows:
Revenue will update the TBESS guidelines once State aid approval for these changes to the scheme is received.
Submitting TBESS claims from March 2023
Qualifying businesses can continue to make claims for the September 2022 to February 2023 claim periods. Revenue will advise businesses in due course when claims can be made for the March 2023 claim period.
Once State aid approval is received to revise the energy costs threshold, Revenue will automatically process claims using the revised 30% threshold. Businesses will not need to amend claims that have already been submitted.
Eligible businesses can continue to register for the TBESS as normal.
