Paying your business rates

municipal offices

Business rates are payable in 10 monthly instalments, normally from April to January each year. The cheapest and most efficient way to pay is by direct debit: complete the tear off direct debit mandate on the back of your bill and return it to the address shown.

If you do not choose to pay by direct debit, payment must be made on, or by, the 1st of each month.

If you miss one or more of your monthly instalments you may lose the right to pay monthly and legal action could be taken against you for the amount you owe for the whole year. 

If you are having difficulty paying your business rates it is important that you contact us as quickly as possible so we can try to help.
