Rates discount deadline approaches

HOUSEHOLD ratepayers are reminded that the deadline for the 4% discount if they pay their rate bill in full is Friday 3 July 2020.

Bills can be paid online by debit or credit card to secure the discount at www.nidirect.gov.uk/rates.

Ratepayers can also set up a single Direct Debit for full payment to avail of the discount. For further information on paying by Direct Debit, contact Land & Property Services on 0300 200 7801 or visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/set-up-a-direct-debit-online

For all other payment methods, including paying by cash, debit card or cheque at a Post Office or Paypoint outlet, ratepayers must allow a minimum of five working days for payment to reach LPS.

A wide range of reliefs and entitlements are available including support for those entitled to Universal Credit, for people on a low income and for pensioners who live on their own. Full details can be found at www.nidirect.gov.uk/rates.
