Having problems paying?

Payment arrangement offer

If you are finding it difficult to pay your business rates please contact us straight away.  

We will do our best to try and resolve the problem with you. If you try to ignore the situation it will only get worse.

If you have received a letter from an enforcement agent, you must contact them directly to arrange payment.

If you have received a notice from Wigan Council you must make arrangements with us to bring your account up to date (we need some offer of payment so that further action can be avoided).

Please tell us how you intend to bring your account up to date by filling in the form below.

  • What notice have you received
  • Further action if no payment or payment arrangement agreed
    To stop further action being taken you need to pay the balance due as stated on the notice/summons. If you do not pay on time the notice/summons will tell you what action we could take next.
  • Payment arrangement offer
    If you are having difficulty paying the notice/summons on time, please tell us how you intend to bring your account up to date (we need some offer of payment so that further action can be avoided).
  • If you require a Direct Debit issuing to you by email once an arrangement has been agreed, please confirm here (or ring us on 01942 489015 to set up DD once payment has been agreed).
  • Declaration
    I declare that the information provided is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge, and authorise the council to make any enquiries necessary to verify it. I understand that I am obliged to inform the council of any change in circumstances.
