About the TECT Rebate

TECT Trustees send out an Annual Distribution Plan for consultation at the beginning of each year. This determines the level of the rebates and the eligibility criteria for that year.  View the 2020 Annual Distribution Plan.

The rebates are paid twice a year; in July and December.
