3. Ways to pay your Business Rates
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.
