How to pay business rates

Paying by direct debit and credit card

Direct debiting is now used throughout the UK for millions of payments every day. It is reliable, convenient, efficient and takes the worry out of regular bill paying. You can pay annually, half-yearly or monthly. We are very pleased to be able to offer a range of payment dates of the 1st, 15th or 28th. Please choose the date which best suits your requirements.

In a full year, the monthly instalments will normally be from April to January. Alternatively, you may want to pay over 12 monthly instalments. If you wish to amend your payment plan please contact us.
