Non Domestic Rates payments are due on or before the 15th day of each month from May to February each year. Payments received anytime after the 15th of each month could result in you being in arrears and receiving a reminder notice as the Council tightens up on late payers. The best way to avoid this is to sign up to pay by Direct Debit. 1. Direct Debit The Council offers a range of pay methods, but Direct Debit is the most efficient & cost effective way to administer Non Domestic Rates payments. It is estimated that a Direct Debit payment costs 5p to administer as opposed to the average cost of 59p for the other payment methods. This means that for each monthly payer converted to Direct Debit from one of the other payment methods there is a minimum estimated annual saving of approximately £5.40 per payer. To try to boost the number of people choosing the Direct Debit way to pay, Dundee City Council is reassuring customers that the levels of control and protection over their money that Direct Debit payers enjoy is higher than other methods of payment. There is an immediate money-back guarantee from the bank, advance notice of date and any changes to amount and the right to cancel at any time. Automatic payment also gives instant peace of mind, ensuring a bill is never forgotten and all without having to find a cheque book or stand in a queue.
