Brentwood Council are currently undertaking a campaign to promote paying Council Tax and Business Rates by direct debit. If you have received a leaflet featuring Creature Comforts please note this is not a scam. To find out more information or to sign up for direct debit on-line, please visit www.brentwood.gov.uk/onlinedd
Non-Domestic Rates, or business rates, collected by local authorities are the way that those who occupy non-domestic property contribute towards the cost of local services.
Under the business rates retention arrangements introduced from 1st April 2013, Brentwood Borough Council and its precepting authorities can keep a proportion of the business rates paid locally. This provides a direct financial incentive for Brentwood Borough Council to work with local businesses and create a favourable local environment for growth as the Council will benefit from growth in business rates revenues.
The money, together with revenue from council tax payers, revenue support grant provided by the Government and certain other sums, is used to pay for the services provided by the Council and other local authorities in your area.
