If you are having problems paying your Business Rates it is important that you contact us as soon as possible. We will do our best to agree an affordable payment arrangement with you. We can also advise you on any relief from rates to which you may be entitled and how to appeal against the rateable value of your property.
If you do not pay your rates and do not contact us we may have to take recovery action against you, which may increase the amount that you have to pay.
