Making a payment

Direct Debit is our preferred method of payment. It is cheaper and easier for us to administer and helps to keep non-domestic business rate bills lower.

  • hand over your demand notice, or card, with your payment
  • your payment will be processed
  • your demand notice, or card, will be returned to you
