Every property shown on the Valuation List for this Borough will receive an annual bill which is usually issued in March for the following financial year commencing 1 April. Every ratepayer has a legal entitlement to pay their annual liability on a 10-monthly cycle. However, the Government has put in place regulations that allow businesses to require their local authority to enable payments to be made through 12 monthly instalments. If you wish to take up this offer, you should contact the local authority by 15 April 2017.

If the ratepayer changes during the course of a financial year the annual liability will be apportioned on a pro rata basis based on the number of days of liability.

The Council recommends payment by Direct Debit and this can be arranged by using Connect self service.
