Ways to pay your business rates

Standing order or BACS

You can setup a standing order or bank transfer to automatically pay a fixed amount off your business rates each month.

You can cancel a standing order or bank transfer however you’d need to make alternative arrangements to continue making regular payments.

Payments using standing orders or bank transfers can take up to 5 working days to reach your business rates account.

Before you get started

You’ll need to contact your bank to setup a standing order or bank transfer. You’ll need to provide our bank details when you contact them:

  • Lloyds TSB, City Office
  • Sort code: 30-00-02
  • Account Number: 01683611
  • Payee: Swale Borough Council

You should use your business rates account reference number as the reference on your standing order or bank transfer.

What happens next

Once you’ve successfully setup a standing order or bank transfer we’ll receive your payment on the date you’ve specified. Your business rates account balance will be automatically updated.
