Ways to pay your Business Rates

There are lots of different ways you can pay your Business Rates each month but we recommend you do it via Direct Debit or online.

Before you set up your preferred way to pay, we recommend you have your Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council reference number ready.

Direct debit

You can set up a Direct Debit payment for your Business Rates online today.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - COVID-19 - Due to the current crisis, we are currently unable to set up new Direct Debit requests. You can still submit a request for a Direct Debit. However, we are currently unable to start collecting payments from new Direct Debit requests made since 4 March 2020. Whilst, you may still receive an automated letter confirming that that your Direct Debit bank details have been received, we ask that until you have received a new Council Tax bill confirming that your payments will be taken by Direct Debit (shown on the reverse of your bill) that you continue to pay in line with your existing bill using another payment method, such as online payments. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you'd prefer to do it over the phone, contact us on 01302 734454 and select option 2 for Business Rates

Online via debit or credit card payment


Call 0333 2000 324 to pay by debit or credit card. The line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Post Office

The bar code on any letter sent to you allows you to pay by cash or debit card free of charge at any post office. You can find your nearest branch by using the Post Office branch finder.


The bar code on any letter sent to you allows you to pay cash at any outlet where you see the Paypoint sign. There is no cost for using this service.

Bank or building society

You can use internet or telephone banking by quoting:

  • sort code 30 92 68
  • account number 40729168
  • IBAN GB95 LOYD 3092 6840 7291 68
  • BIC LOYDGB21425

As payments can take longer using this method, make sure they are paid in advance of your specified instalment date.


Make your cheque payable to Doncaster MBC and include your Doncaster Council reference on the reverse of the cheque. Payments can take longer using this method, so please make sure they are paid in plenty of time before your instalment date.

If you change your method of payment you will receive new instructions telling you when and how to pay.
