Data protection statement
The information you provide will be used to process your payment. It may be shared with other council services and partner organisations to ensure our records are kept accurate and to help us to identify services you may be entitled to or interested in. Shropshire Council may also share relevant information with external agencies for the purposes of preventing and detecting fraud, or if the law requires us to do so.
Alternatively, you can pay your 2010/2011 business rates using one of the following methods:
By direct debit
A safe, quick and easy way to pay, with a full guarantee against errors. Compared to other payment methods, monthly direct debiting offers you the following advantages:
- Saves you time – no more cheques to write, no more queuing to pay!
- Saves you money – no more stamps to buy!
- Lower administration costs – by reducing handling costs you can help keep business rates as low as possible
- Gives you peace of mind – your bank/building society makes sure your bill is paid on time
- Full guarantee against errors – see the direct debit guarantee via the link on this page
Setting up a direct debit to pay your business rates in monthly instalments is simple. Call 0345 678 9003 to sign up over the phone, or just complete and return a direct debit instruction. The direct debit instruction can be located on the back of your last bill.
You will be notified of the amounts to be debited at least 14 days before the first payment date. If you have any queries about the direct debit scheme, please telephone 0345 678 9003.
By phone with a debit or credit card (24 Hours a Day)
