Households to receive rate bills

1 Mins read

Land & Property Services (LPS) is issuing household rate bills this week.

To help households during Covid-19, the issuing of domestic rate bills was deferred and the Executive agreed to freeze the element of the rate bill which it sets.

Over £680million was collected in household rates in 2019/20 and invested in vital public services such as healthcare, education and roads, as well as helping to fund essential council services.

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.

Land & Property Services is encouraging anyone having difficulty paying to contact them on 0300 200 7801 or by email at [email protected] for advice on payment arrangements and the range of support available.

The bill will set out the amount due for 2020/21, details of any rate relief which applies to your account and any debt from previous years that has not been paid.

There are a number of ways to pay your rate bill:

– Domestic ratepayers can receive 4% discount if they pay their bill in full on or before 3 July 2020.
– Direct Debit is the easiest and most convenient way to pay and allows ratepayers to spread the cost over 10 instalments from June 2020 to March 2021. Set up a – – Direct Debit online.
