2. Pay business rates by direct debit

By paying through direct debit, you won't have to remember to pay every month. It's automatic, it spreads the cost and helps you avoid falling into arrears.

Your bank details to complete the direct debit mandate.


Your direct debit instalments will be set up as soon as possible and you will receive a revised bill showing your remaining instalments. In accordance with the Direct Debit Guarantee scheme we will give you 10 working days' notice before the first instalment is taken out of your bank account.

This means the start date of your instalments may be delayed by one month. You can either make your first payment online, or we will spread the balance over the remaining months.
