Direct Debit is the most convenient way to pay. You can pay in up to 12 instalments and have the choice of four payment dates.
Debit card online payments
You can make online debit card payments.
Debit card payments can be made over the phone. Call our 24-hour automated service on 020 7527 8000 and have the business rates account number on your bill and your bank card ready.

To pay your bill using your bank’s telephone or internet banking service, please quote Islington Council’s bank account number 63217760 and sort code 20-00-00, together with your eight-digit business rates account number.
Cheques should be crossed and made out to ‘Islington Council’. Remember that you need to allow at least five working days for a cheque or bank payment to clear. Please ensure you have written your business rates account number on the back of your cheque. We cannot accept post-dated cheques.
