The payment reference is '24', followed by your account reference.

Search for a PayPoint outlet

You can pay your business rates by cash only at any outlet displaying the PayPoint logo. To make payment you will need your business rate payment slip, which will be printed with a barcode.

If you wish to use a PayPoint outlet and your payment slip does not have a barcode, please contact us.
