CHANGES in the law mean Trafford businesses can pay their Business Rates bills for 2014/15 and onwards over 12 months.
Firms wanting to do this need to complete the electronic form on Trafford Council’s website and they should visit trafford.gov.uk/pay12months and submit it by February 21. The 12 month instalment plan will then be reflected in their 2014/15 annual bill.
Any businesses who decide after this date that they want to benefit from the full 12 monthly instalment plan must submit the same form by March 14.
A direct debit scheme is available to pay business rates and any business which want to find out more should call 0161 912 2346 with their bank account details.
