Rates QuickPay Card
If you don't pay your rates by Direct Debit, you will find the Rates QuickPay card at the bottom of your bill. This is a convenient way to pay your rates, either in full or by instalments.
The card replaces the bank giro slip and can be used in a Post Office or Payzone outlet. It is not accepted at banks, building societies or in Land & Property Services (LPS) offices.
If you pay by Direct Debit, you will not receive a QuickPay card.
Households in receipt of full Housing Benefit (for rates) do not receive a rate bill.
