Business rates payment problems

If you are having difficulties paying, you must contact us as soon as possible.

We can check that you are receiving all the discounts and reliefs that you may be entitled to, and discuss payment options with you. We may be able to offer alternative payment dates or extend payments to help you.

If you don't pay

Payments are due on or before the date detailed on your most recent business rates bill. If you do not pay in line with the bill, recovery action will be taken and this may incur further costs.

A reminder notice can be issued at any time after a payment becomes due. We will only issues one reminder notice per financial year.

If you fall into arrears again, a final notice will be issued and the full balance of your account will become due.

You can contact us with any enquiries and comments by using our online form.
