Having difficulties paying your Business Rates?

If you're having difficulties making your Business Rates payments or you're in arrears, please contact us using our details on this page so we can discuss your account with you.

Paying your rates on time

You must pay your rates as instructed on your bill. If you have not paid at least four of your monthly instalments by 30th September, you will lose the right to pay in instalments.

Also, if you miss two or more payments after the 30th September, you will lose your right to pay in instalments.

If you have chosen to pay your bill in one instalment, you must make this payment by 1st October.

What happens if you don't pay your Business Rates?

If you do not pay your Business Rates, you will lose your right to pay in instalments. If you lose your right to pay in instalments, we will send you a final notice. You will have 14 days from the date of the notice to pay the rates you owe for the year.

If you do not pay as instructed, we will apply to the Sheriff Court for a 'summary warrant', which allows us to collect the taxes you owe us. We will also add costs of 10% of the amount you owe to your account
