We aim to make paying your Business Rates as painless as possible by providing a variety of payment methods. Choose the one which suits you best.


By Direct Debit

Paying by Direct Debit not only saves you time and hassle, it's also the most cost effective method for us too. You have a choice of payment dates and the Direct Debit Guarantee means that you're always in control of your money. We currently have approximately 57% of taxpayers using this method. If you would like to pay by Direct Debit, download and print the Business Rates DD Mandate [44kb] form from the downloads section to complete and return by post.

Alternatively Contact us with your bank details (from your cheque book or bank card) and we can set up your Direct Debit straight away.

We have a duty to protect the public funds we administrate, the information provided on your Business Rates DD Mandate [44kb] form may be used for the prevention and detection of fraud. We may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes. For further information, see our Privacy page and Fair Processing Notice [77kb].
