Paying your Business Rates
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.
Note: From 1 December 2018, you'll no longer be able to pay by cheque at Phoenix House or by sending a cheque in the post. Please see our We're changing the ways you can pay page for more information.
