Paying Your NNDR Bill

There are several options for paying your NNDR bill and you can choose which way is most convenient for you.

Please ensure that each instalment reaches us by the due date.


It is up to you whether your bill is broken down into 10 or 12 instalments. If you choose 10 instalments, you will pay more each month but will usually have a break from payments each February and March. If you choose 12 instalments, you will pay less each month but pay all year round. Whichever you choose, the total amount you pay each year will be exactly the same.

If you wish to pay half yearly please pay your first 5 instalments on the 1 April and the remaining balance on 1 September.
