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.

What are Business Rates?
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.
If your property has both business and residential use (for
example, a Public House), part will be assessed for Business Rates
and the living accommodation will be assessed for Council Tax.
