Delays in issue of Rate Bills for 2017 / 2018

Land & Property Services (LPS) has confirmed that there will be a delay in the issue of rate bills for 2017/2018.

Usually at the beginning of April each year LPS issues annual rate bills to homes and businesses across Northern Ireland. This year, bills will be late due to a delay in the setting of the Regional Rate.

From the end of this week, LPS will be issuing a letter to every rate payer about the delay of 2017/2018 rate bills with advice and further information for ratepayers.

LPS is putting plans in place to allow bills to issue in May 2017, giving ratepayers the choice of making payment by the usual 10 instalments and to avail of the early payment discount as appropriate. This bill will cover rates assessed from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018, as well as any unpaid rates from previous years.

If a ratepayer normally pays by Direct Debit, they don’t need to do anything. No direct debit payments will be taken until a new bill is issued. If they normally pay by Standing Order/online/cheque LPS would encourage ratepayers to make a payment based on last year’s assessment.

For up to date information on the issue of rate bills, please visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/rate-bill-update for domestic customers or www.nibusinessinfo.co.uk/rate-bill-update for non-domestic customers.
