Direct Debit

If you choose to pay by direct debit you can get up to 12 months to pay your business rates rather than 10 (only available from April to March).

If you choose to pay by direct debit we also give you a choice of three payment dates - either the 1st, 15th or 25th of each month.

Once set up, your direct debit will continue yearly so you will not need to contact your bank at the beginning and end of your instalment plan.

By setting up a direct debit:

  • your bank will make payments automatically
  • you can cancel your direct debit at any time
  • you are protected by the direct debit guarantee - your bank will fully refund you if an error is made in payment of your direct debit
  • you can trust direct debit to be totally secure - so just relax and enjoy how it frees up your time

Set up direct debit now

We will send you a letter and bill to confirm it has been set up and when your first payment will be collected. The letter incudes a copy of the direct debit guarantee scheme which you should keep for your records.

Alternatively, you may also set up a direct debit by phoning us on 020 8489 1700.
