What if I don't pay on time?
If you do not pay an instalment of your Business Rates on time, a reminder will be sent stating how much you need to pay.
If you do not pay after we sent you a reminder and do not make all further payments on time, you will lose the right to pay by instalments.
The Council will demand payment of the full charge straight away and a Summons may be issued for you to appear in the Magistrates Court. Any summons issued will incur costs of £70. Unless payment is received the Council will apply to the Court for a liability order.
If you have difficulty in paying your Business Rates, please get in touch with us immediately on 01495 766125/766126. Don’t wait for us to send you a reminder.
