  1. How to pay your non domestic (business) rates

    Most people pay their non domestic/ business rates for the year by ten monthly instalments from April to January. You will find these instalments shown on your bill. However if you prefer you can opt to pay the full amount at the start of the year, or by two instalments (April and October).

  2. What if my rateable value is wrong?

    If you think either your rateable value or rating list entry is incorrect, you can make an appeal asking for it to be changed.
