Schedule accounts are available to customers who are liable for more than one business rates bill with Salford City Council. A schedule account means that all of your accounts are combined into one bill with just one payment for all the properties you are liable for within Salford City Council boundaries.
To request a schedule account, complete the online form, 'Request a schedule account'. This means if you are eligible you will receive one bill called the ‘header account’.
This bill will summarise all the charges for all the accounts that your business is liable for.
At the start of each financial year you will receive your header account showing the full charge for all your business accounts, plus the individual accounts that this charge incorporates but you will only need to make one payment per month (as it includes all your accounts). This will be sent by electronic billing to the e-mail address we have on file.
If there are any reported changes to any of the accounts during the financial year the balance on the Header account will update automatically. You will then receive a new copy of the Header account and a copy of any of the member accounts we have changed.
Schedule accounts means just one bill for all properties you are liable for so this also changes the way recovery notices work.
For example, if we need to contact you about the schedule falling behind in payments the reminder notice will be issued to the schedule header account holder not the individual properties.
If you have any questions, please call 0161 793 2500 or contact us via webchat which is available from our website between 8.30am and 4.30pm.
