Business Rates - How do I pay?

Pay by Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the best way to pay.  It's simple, quick and safe.  When you sign up to Direct Debit you are automatically covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee which is offered by all banks and building societies that take part in the Direct Debit scheme.

We will notify you ten working days in advance of your account being debited if the amounts to be paid or the payment date changes.

If we or your bank or building society make an error, you are guaranteed a full and immediate refund.  You can cancel a Direct Debit at any time by writing to your bank or building society.  Please send a copy of your letter to us.

To sign up now please call us on 01322 343008.  Alternatively you can print and complete a Direct Debit Mandate. PDF, 524.66 KB
