When to pay your business rates

Payment dates

There is the choice of two payment dates of the 1st or 20th of each month.


Business rates bills can be split into either:

  • 10 monthly instalments from April to the following January 
  • 12 monthly instalments, from April to March

If we send you a bill in the middle of a financial year, it will have the amount due spread over the number of instalments remaining for the year.

The dates of your payments and the amounts due are shown on your business rates bill.

If you would like to change your payment date or the number of your instalments, please complete the form below.
