Direct Debit

If you pay by Direct Debit you can have a choice of 4 payment dates: 1st, 8th, 15th or 22nd unlike other methods which are restricted to the 1st of the month only.

To set up a Direct Debit please call us on 020 8227 2934. 

Please have your business rates account reference and your bank account details ready.

It's guaranteed

Direct Debit payments come with a guarantee so you're automatically protected by three important safeguards:

  1. An immediate money-back guarantee from your bank in the event of an error in the payment of your Direct Debit
  2. Advance notice if the date or amount changes
  3. The right to cancel at any time

The Direct Debit Guarantee is offered by all banks and building societies that accept instructions to pay Direct Debits.  For further information on Direct Debit, please visit the Direct Debit website.


You can pay 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, using our automated payment line:
