What happens if you do not pay?

Failure to make the required payment(s) may result in the commencement of recovery action culminating in the issue of a summons and if the court is satisfied you are liable they can issue a Liability Order.

This means the council can:

  • instruct enforcement agents to take your belongings and sell them in order to raise money to pay the outstanding business rates and costs
  • bring insolvency proceedings against you
  • obtain security for unpaid business rates; and
  • bring further proceedings before the Magistrates' Court that may lead to your committal to prison
