Rates, Building & Property

Pay your rates by direct debit

Pay your rates the easy way with Easy Pay direct debit payments. To get started, complete the online form below.

Choosing to pay your rates by direct debit means you can manage your bill by spreading your payments more frequently across the year. Pay weekly, fortnightly, quarterly or monthly – it's up to you.

What are the benefits?

  • No card fee
  • No forgetting to pay
  • No standing in queues
  • No cheques or postage
  • No large cash payments

How does it work?

When you join the Rates Easy Pay system you will receive a letter confirming your bank account details, start date and payment frequency. Your rates will be automatically paid out of your bank account.

You keep full control over your method of payment and can change the frequency or cancel your Rates Easy Pay arrangement at any time.

Any changes to your rates will be adjusted automatically – you don't have to visit the bank to make a change.

If you sell your property and buy a new one, you'll need to fill in a new application form.
