How To Pay Your Business Rates
When do I have to pay my Business Rates?
Business Rates demand notices are sent out at the beginning of the financial year. These may be paid in one installment or by 10 monthly installments from April to January.
The date you must pay your installment each month is shown on your Business Rates Demand notice.This is normally the 1st of each month, unless paying by Direct Debit.
If you pay in a Bank or Post Office, or send your payment through the post, please remember that we will not receive your payments for a few days. Please allow for this delay when making your payment using this method.
How can I pay my Non - Domestic Rates bill?
This is the easiest way of paying and is the only method of payment which gives you a choice of payment date, on either the 1st, 10th or 20th of the month.
Please note: Council Tax payers who wish to pay by Direct Debit will have the option to make payments over 10 or 12 months. The option of 12 monthly instalments is only available to Direct Debit payers.
