Pay business rates

You will need your reference number which is nine digits long, starts with a two and is located on the top right of any correspondence sent by the business rates department. 

When paying by cash/card/cheque, you should make the payments before or on the due dates detailed on your bill. Failure to do so can result in recovery action being taken against you.

  • Visa Credit
  • Visa Debit
  • UK Maestro
  • International Maestro
  • Mastercard
  • Solo
  • Electron JCB
