Direct Debit is simple, quick and safe. Just give us your details once and we'll do the rest. Please complete the online form by clicking on the blue start button.

You can spread the cost of your business rates over 2, 10 or 12 monthly interest-free payments and choose to pay on either the 1st or 17th of the month.

Your payment is automatically debited from your account and you don't need to fill in a new form every year.

If you have reached final notice stage, we need to talk to you before we can set up your Direct Debit as you have lost your right to pay by instalments. Please provide your mobile or landline so we can discuss reinstating them.

To change your existing Direct Debit bank details for business rates, you need to set up a new Direct Debit.
