Paying your business rates

We are upgrading our systems and will not be able to make updates or process any claims until 10 December. Housing benefit payments and direct debits for council tax and business rates will continue as normal.  You can still send in forms and we will process them as soon as we can. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

There are a number of different ways to pay your business rates. There are no administration charge for payments made using a debit or credit card.

Pay by Direct Debit

Set up a Direct Debit by calling 01285 623000 if the bank account you are going to pay from is a personal account, or you are the only person required to set up a direct debit.

Or you can fill in and return the direct debit form to the address on the form.

Pay online

To make a payment online you will need your non-domestic rate bill number and your payment card details.
