If you don’t pay your business rates

We understand that the past 18 months have been difficult for businesses. If you have business rates arrears, contact us as soon as possible to discuss your situation. We can find an acceptable solution and help you avoid summons costs and recovery action.

If you’re having difficulties or are struggling to pay your business rates, contact us immediately. We can check to make sure you’re getting all the discounts and reliefs you’re entitled to.

If you do not contact us and continue to miss your payments, we will have to take action to recover outstanding money. This will involve the issue of a Magistrates’ Court summons. We will ask the court to grant a liability order. This will mean enforcement agent action (previously known as bailiffs), insolvency or even committal to prison.
