How to Pay Business Rates

There are several ways in which you can pay your business rates.

Direct Debit

Direct Debit is Mole Valley District Council's (MVDC) preferred payment method. There is a choice of four payment dates: the 1st, 5th, the 15th or the 25th of each month. All other payment methods not on direct debit are due on the 1st of each month.

If you would like to begin making payments by direct debit, please call 01306 879295 with your bank details to hand, or download and complete a NNDR Direct Debit Instruction and email to

Online Payments

This facility is available for payment by debit or credit card. Visit the Payments page and simply follow the step by step instructions to make your payment.

Debit Card/ Credit Card

Payment can be made by debit card or credit card via a dedicated phone line, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To use this service, please call 0300 123 1064 (calls will be charged at the local rate). You will need your card details and your business rate account number to hand to make payment by this method.

Home/Telephone Banking

You can pay using any of the telephone or personal computer banking services offered by banks and building societies. You will need to quote your non-domestic rate reference number, MVDC's NatWest sort code 62-21-50 and account number 00000000. The payment reference required is your 9-digit Business Rates reference number which is shown on your Business Rates bill. Please be advised that the only payee name that will be accepted is 'Mole Valley District Council'. Any abbreviation of this will result in the payment being rejected.


Send your cheque payable to 'MVDC', quoting your reference number and / or your name and address to: Revenues team, MVDC, Pippbrook, Dorking, Surrey, RH4 1SJ. (Please do not send cash through the post).

Monthly Instalments

In order to pay your Business Rates in 12 instalments, a request has to be made by 17 March and a payment must be made during April. Applications made after 17 March will be payable in a reduced number of instalments with the final payment in March.
