Set up a Business Rates Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the best way to pay. It's simple, quick and safe.

  • You can choose from four payment dates - 1st, 8th, 15th or 23rd of the month.
  • When you sign up you're 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 10 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 (but please send a copy of your letter to us).


To set up a Direct Debit you will need:

  • Your bank account details
  • Your Business Rates account number
