How to pay your business rates

Pay by direct debit

Direct debit is the easiest way to pay your Business rates.

We take the monthly payment from your bank account automatically, with Direct Debit Guarantee protection.

To set up a direct debit you must be:

  • the Business rates payer or a joint Business rates payer and
  • the bank account holder or joint bank account holder

We cannot set up a direct debit if you are not the account holder.

If you already pay by direct debit you do not have to set up a new instruction each year. Your instruction will continue unless you have cancelled the instruction at your bank.

If you have a change in circumstances which means that we allocate you a new account reference number, you will have to re-submit your bank details to us.

Set up a direct debit over the phone

You can set up you direct debit by calling us during office hours between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

To set up a direct debit, you will need your:

  • Business rates account reference number from your bill
  • bank account or building society account number and sort code
  • email address

Once we have set your direct debit up, we will write to you to confirm the details.

Complete a direct debit instruction

You can also set up a direct debit, by downloading and filling in a direct debit instruction.

Once you have completed the form, you will need to send it to our Business rates team to set up your direct debit. Once we have set your direct debit up, we will write to you to confirm the details.
