Pay Business Rates

We offer a range of ways to pay your business rates. Rates are payable by 10 instalments from May to February or in full before 30 September in any year. If an account is issued after the start of a financial year, the amount of instalments will reduce. You can pay online, in person or by post, by phone or by setting up a direct debit.
