When to pay business rates

In April each year, you will receive a bill showing how much your business rates will be for the new financial year.

Business rates are normally paid in ten monthly instalments starting in May and ending in February, although alternative methods of payment are available.

For any subsequent bill issued throughout the financial year, your monthly instalments will start in the following month and will end in February.

No instalments will be available for bills issued after December. These bills are payable in full on the 28th of the following month.

If you would like more information about paying your business rates, just get in touch.
