Under this Scheme, affected customers may be able to spread their debts in equal installments over a period of up to twelve months, if they qualify for the Scheme. Customers who qualify for the Repayment Scheme are those that meet the requirements set by Ofwat as set out below:
Eligible customers can apply for this Scheme up until 31 March 2021.
Please note, you must complete this online form as completely and as accurately as possible or we may not be able to fully assess and process your application. In order to ensure that the Scheme is targeted at those who require it, we may seek supporting evidence of payment difficulties.
To help customers still affected by Covid-19, we will not be carrying out disconnection visits, or enforcing late payment charges, to affected customers. Ofwat expects all other customers to pay their water charges when they are due.
If you haven’t already, please let us know as soon as possible if your business was temporarily closed between 16 March and 31 July 2020 (the period in which Ofwat has permitted a reduction in charges due to Covid-19).
