How can I pay my rates bill?

The simplest method for paying your non-domestic rates is by setting up a direct debit.  Other payment methods are available. You can also choose to pay your rates twice yearly in May and October.

If you are having difficulty paying your non-domestic rates bill it is essential that you contact us as soon as possible to discuss your options.  Failure to do so may result in legal action being taking to recover the debt. Find out more on our NDR Recovery page.

Direct Debit

You can choose to make payments by direct debit on the 1st, 7th, 18th or 28th of each month.  You can set up a direct debit today using our self service facility .

If you are unable to set up a direct debit online e.g. because two or more people must authorise this, you can pdf icon download a copy of the mandate [165kb].

A letter will be issued to you confirming your bank details and the direct debit guarantee applies.


You can make a payment directly to the council using our online payment facility. Please ensure that you have your rates reference number to hand as this is required to make a payment.


To pay your bill by debit or credit card, using our automated payment line (available 24 hours, 7 days a week including public holidays) phone us on 0141 287 0300.

Bank Transfer

You can make payment directly into our bank account. Our details are:

Account Number: 00223217

Sort Code: 83-44-00

You must quote your reference number when making the payment.


We will never phone you and ask for bank account details to refund your non-domestic rates.
