Difficulties in paying business rates

1. Overview

If you are unable to pay your business rates you should contact the Business Rates team as soon as possible to discuss your personal circumstances.

The longer you leave contacting us the bigger your arrears will become and the harder it will be to make a suitable payment arrangement to clear the debt.

The sooner you contact us the better. You are less likely to be charged additional costs and the Council may be able to allow you a longer time to pay off the debt.

For details of other discounts and exemptions see our reductions and reliefs pages.
