You can pay your business rates in 10 monthly instalments between April and January.

To reduce your monthly instalments, you can ask us if you can pay your bill over 12 months between April and March.

For bills issued on or after 1 May, the number of instalments reduces as follows:

May 9 11
June 8 10
July 7 9
August 6 8
September 5 7
October 4 6
November 3 5
December 2 4
January 1 3
February   2
March   1

Your payment must reach us by the 1st day of the month it is due, unless you pay by Direct Debit.

You can pay by Direct Debit on 1st, 8th, 15th, 20th and 23rd of the month.

The amounts you need to pay are at the bottom of your bill. If you find it difficult to pay by the dates shown on your bill or you want to check the amount you need to pay, contact us.

If you do not pay your business rates on time, we will take action to recover the money due. This may add costs to your account.
