Pay your Business Rates

Business Rate bills can be paid in a variety of ways. Our preferred method is by Direct Debit.

From Tuesday 17 October, our Revenues and Benefits systems will be offline for 6-8 weeks as we transition onto a new system. Our services will continue during this time but you may need to do some things differently.

Read our FAQs, which explain what to do in relation to Council Tax, Housing Benefits, and Business Rates queries or applications during this time.
