We'll send you a business rate account. If you occupy between 1 April and the 31 December we will normally offer you instalments to pay your business rates. However, if it is towards the end of the calendar year (31 December) we may not be able to offer you this facility. For a full financial year you will be offered the option of paying your business rates with ten instalments. These normally start on 1 April and finishing on 1 January of the following year.
