Pay business rate bill - Area code 2B

 
Area code 2B is for businesses in West Dorset.

Pay by Direct Debit

This is the simplest and most convenient way to pay. There are no cheques to write, no cash to deal with and no ongoing paperwork because payments are made for you by your bank or building society.

You remain in control of your payments, as we will notify you at least 10 working days before any change to your payments. You are guaranteed a full and immediate refund by your bank in the unlikely event of an error and you are free to cancel the direct debit instruction at any time.

Set up a standing order

You can make arrangements with your bank or building society to set up regular payments to the council. The following details will be required to ensure that your payments are allocated to your account:

  • bank sort code: 40-19-21
  • bank account no: 01163191
  • payment reference (you can find your your reference number on your current bill)

Late payment

Payments must be made in accordance with your business rate bill. In the event of late payment, a reminder notice may be issued.

Legislation allows for a maximum of only 2 reminders to be issued in any financial year. After this, the remaining balance for the year becomes payable in full.
