How to set up a bank transfer correctly
Enter the correct information in each of the 3 fields your bank provides for you; 'Particulars', 'Code', and 'Reference'.

Rates Assessment Number from the Notice. This is a six-digit number with no alpha characters (e.g. 123456 )
Use the samples below to ensure you enter the correct Assessment number on the notice
Please do not make one transfer for several accounts- for example, three rate accounts, a water account and a dog registration. Instead, split the payment with the appropriate payment particular and reference details to ensure that the payment is made to the correct account.
Ratepayers with automatic payments are responsible for keeping these up to date. This means ensuring the amounts are sufficient to clear the rates by all of the required due dates, that the Assessment References are correct, and that they are cancelled if a property is sold .
