“PowerPass” access for electricity rebates with tax number end-digit system

Over 300,000 electricity consumers submitted their application for rebates to the platform of PowerPass in only four days, since the platform opened on Friday evening.

Thousands are still stand by as allowed, so far, are applications by taxpayers whose tax number ends in 1, 2, 3 and 4.

It normally takes 48 hours until the platform is open for another one or two end numbers.

The government made a last minute tax number restriction in order to avoid being overflowed with applications that could bring the platform down.

Greece’s residents rushed to apply for the state rebates due to the additional charges, the so-called “adjustment clause”, in their electricity bills.

The rebates can range from 18 to 600 euros, and will be granted for bills issued between December 1, 2021 and May 31, 2022.

The platform will be open until June 30.

The funds are scheduled to be paid to beneficiaries’ bank accounts by July 15.

In order to access the Power Pass platform one needs the codes of taxis net. The the number of the electricity supply to the owned or rented home will be added.

The POWERPASS platform, you find at vouchers.gov.gr (in Greek)

    Is there a guide in English available for completing the form? I’m struggling with what is required for parts of it. Thanks.

      no. sorry. accountant could do it.

    • This page https://vouchers.gov.gr/powerpass has a lot of information and translates reasonably into English if you open it in the Chrome browser. I don’t know if it answers your problems. I also intend to use the platform in the Chrome browser when they eventually reach tax numbers that end in 0. Be aware that sometimes control buttons don’t work while in English and you need to temporarily switch back to Greek before clicking the button then switch back to English.

    Sorry to bug you again Warwick, but I can’t work out what is needed to complete the last few fields on the form, and when I try to enter my AFM, no keyboard pops up. Any help much appreciated.

  4. I have just been told by our accountant that as we are not Greek citizens that we cannot apply?

    We have our Bio-metric permits, have lived here for 5 years, purchased a car, bought our home, pay ENFIA,
    AMKA etc. etc.

    Is this information correct? Every time I try to apply I get a “not eligible” response with my taxisnet codes and wonder if anyone else is having same issue. We have no Greek income only our state pension from the UK so always submit a nil tax declaration and asked our accountant if this was why we have “Not Eligible”. Any help or advice would be very welcome.

    • You need to be tax resident in Greece to qualify. You should be declaring your pension here. The 183 day rule for residency permits automatically means you should be tax resident here. Unfortunately many accountants here advised people wrongly to stay tax resident in the UK. When you left the UK to become an immigrant here you were supposed to inform HMRC and they would have advised you.
