New business rates bills are being calculated to reflect the revised business rates relief guidance announced by Government on 18 March. These will be issued to business ratepayers as soon as possible.
For those paying by Direct Debit, if it is not possible to issue the new bill before your first instalment falls due in April, we will take steps as far as possible to ensure that no funds are taken from your account until your new bill has been issued. For those eligible businesses that do not pay by Direct Debit we will take no recovery action if you miss you first payment so as to allow time for the new bill to be issued. We will actively identify eligible businesses and there is no need to contact us at this stage.
