How to pay your business rates

We’ll send you a bill for your business rates in March each year for the financial year ahead
(1 April to 31 March). Contact us if you don’t receive a bill.

When you get your bill, it will tell you how much to pay and the dates you should pay your instalments.  If you don't pay exactly as requested, we may send you a reminder notice and take further recovery action against you.

In some circumstances, you may be able to benefit from some kind of rate relief or exemption to reduce your rates bill.

Pay by Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the easiest way to pay your bill. You can choose whether to pay your bill on the 5th, 12th, 18th or 25th of each month.

You can also make automated payments by debit or credit card.

Business rates refund

If your business rate account's in credit, you can claim a refund, but we’ll only refund your credit if you don’t owe us any further amounts of business rates.
