Business rates arrears

Business rates enforcement agents (bailiffs) and insolvency

If all other attempts to reach a payment arrangement fail, then the debt relating to your business rates arears will be passed to an enforcement agency to collect.

Enforcement agents can take goods from your business to clear the arrears and will charge you extra costs for their services.


If the value of goods taken from your business by enforcement agents doesn't clear your business rates arrears we may start proceedings to close down your business (see 'Winding Up' on GOV.UK), or take direct insolvency action against you, such as bankruptcy (GOV.UK), and you may incur further costs if this action is taken.

For more detailed information, visit the Insolvency Service website.
