Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme Survey
The Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme (TBESS) was introduced to support businesses with increases in their electricity or natural gas (energy) costs.
As of the 11th January, 10,361 businesses have registered for the scheme. 5,119 of these have commenced the claim process. 3,661 businesses have fully completed the claims process while 1,458 have partially completed the claims process.
Until the claims process is fully complete, the claim cannot be processed by Revenue and for approved claims, a payment made. To date, the vast majority of completed claims have been approved by Revenue.
The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment are now seeking feedback as to any barriers businesses may have for registering and completing the claims process.

The scheme is 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)
- 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.
Please note: There is a 4-month deadline for TBESS applications, as such September applications will need to be filed by the end of January.
