I've just taken a look and they need receipts of the fuel - in my case coal and wood. Unfortunately I only have the last coal one and it's not over £200, and nor does it have our address on. The wood we paid cash for, and we never asked for a receipt. (We collected it ourselves as it worked out cheaper.) The coal I sometimes collect from the coal merchant or buy top-up bags from say Aldi. I don't know what I can do. I can't remember when the coal was bought to even ask the coal merchant and the invoices are hand written chits so don't even have our names on. This extra £200 would be an absolute blessing. We don't have any central heating or radiators, just 1 coal fire in the front room with additional portable electric heaters as a top-up. Our last electric bill was over £420 for the month! (We have an elderly dog who isn't in great health so we have to keep the front room warm, even if the other rooms are freezing cold.)
Any ideas guys?
I submitted two pre September 22 invoices, one was dated 2021. I tend to only fill up annually.
There's hope that sense prevails for everyone that topped up last summer
