Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the easiest and most cost effective way to pay and ensures your instalments are paid on time. 

You can spread the cost of your business rates over 2, 10 or 12 monthly interest-free payments and you can choose to pay on either 1st or 17th of the month.

Set up Direct Debit now - all you need is your business rates bill number and your bank details.

Alternatively, you can print off and fill out a Direct Debit mandate and post it to us or call us on 01395 517445 and we will take the details over the phone. The caller has to be the sole account signatory.

Online 

You can pay online, using a debit or credit card.

Telephone

Call our automated payment line on 08447 369631* at any time and follow the prompts. You will need the business rates bill number and a debit or credit card.

BACS

You can pay by BACS via your own bank using our bank details below.

Bank Standing Order

Ask your bank to set up a standing order. Our bank details are:

Bank: Lloyds Bank PLC Exeter
Sort Code: 30-93-14

Please remember that unlike a Direct Debit  that carries on from year to year, you have to set up a standing order each year in order to pay the new instalment amounts.

Post Office

Pay by cash or cheque using the barcode on the front of your bill at any Post Office. If you are paying by cheque make it payable to Post Office Ltd and write your business rates bill number and address on the back. Always ask for a receipt.

Payzone

Use the barcode on the front of your bill at any Payzone outlet. Some Payzone outlets may only accept cash.

Post

Send your cheque or postal order direct to us and make it payable to East Devon District Council. Always write your business rates bill number and address on the back. Do not send cash through the post.
