Business Rates (Non-Domestic Rates)

Have you received a Business Rates Reminder / Final Notice?

Business Rates Reminders / Final Notices were issued on 12th September 2014. If you have received a Reminder / Final Notice, the full payment requested needs to be received by Cheshire East Council by 7th October 2014 at the latest, to prevent a Summons being issued.

For further information regarding Reminder / Final Notices, please visit the Reminder / Final Notice section of our Recovery Process & FAQ's page.

Should you need to speak to a member of staff regarding the Reminder / Final Notice you have received, please note we are experiencing a heavy volume of calls at the moment. Therefore we apologise if you experience a delay in contacting the office.

Business Rates Payments to New Bank Account

On 1st April 2014 Cheshire East Council changed banks from the Co-op to Barclays. As our Co-op bank account has now closed, any payments made to our old bank account will be returned to your own bank account, although there could be a delay in this occurring. Therefore, the payment will not reach your Council Tax or Business Rates account.

Payments should now be made directly to our new bank account, details which are available on our Payment Options page.

The Non-Domestic Rates or Business Rates, collected by Cheshire East Council are the means by which businesses and others who occupy non-domestic property make a contribution towards the cost of local services.
