Problems paying your business rates
You may be able to get help if you’re having problems paying your business rates.
If you’re having problems paying your business rates, call us on 0117 922 3300 and we'll do what we can to help.
Manage your payments
To help manage your payments, you could:
- pay what you owe over a longer period, by setting up a payment arrangement with us
- set up a Direct Debit, to make sure the payment is made on time and choose the day your payment is made
Check if you can get a discount or exemption
You may be able to get your business rates reduced, for example if your business is small, your property has a low rateable value, you have an empty property or occupy a property that was recently unoccupied.
Get financial support
If you’re having trouble getting a loan from a bank you may be able to get financial support from a government scheme or another organisation.
