Rates bills for 2019-20 issued

1 April 2019

Non-domestic rate bills will be delivered to Northern Ireland businesses this week

Land & Property Services (LPS), part of the Department of Finance, is issuing rate bills this week to homes and businesses in Northern Ireland.

The rate bill outlines the amount due for the billing period 2019-20 and includes any debt from previous years that has not been paid, along with any rate relief where applicable. Business or non-domestic rate bills will rise only in line with inflation by 1.8 per cent.

A range of reliefs and entitlements are available to help ratepayers – see help available for business rates.

Paying your rate bill
There are a number of ways to pay your rates bill:

  • Direct Debit is the easiest and most convenient way and allows ratepayers to spread the cost over 10 instalments
  • Pay online
  • Pay at any Post Office or PayPoint, by phone or in person at a LPS Customer Information Centre. Cash payments are no longer accepted at Customer Information Centres
