Council Tax and business rates In 2018 new rules banned companies from charging any fees on card payments. This also applies to local authorities and other government agencies. As a result, we cannot accept credit cards for the payment of Council Tax, business rates and Business Improvement District payments. For security reasons we are unable to accept payments of more than £5,000 in a single transaction and your card company or issuer may impose a lower limit for internet use of their card.
