Non-domestic rates

HM Revenue & Customs individually rate beach huts throughout the UK for non-domestic rates. Beach hut Licensees pay non-domestic rates separately, where these apply.

You may be able to reduce your bill by claiming Small Business Rate Relief, providing you do not pay business rates somewhere else. This will reduce the rates element of the beach hut hire by 100 per cent. Instructions on how to apply for this reduction will be sent with your bill.

For all enquiries about your bills, email Stour Valley and Poole Partnership at or call 01202 123 113.

Pay for a beach hut or site in Poole

You will be issued with an invoice before the start of the licence period, you can choose to pay in full or in instalments.

Direct Debit

You can pay monthly by Direct Debit. If you already pay by Direct Debit, the charges for your annual licence will be automatically paid from your account.

Your Direct Debit instruction will not cover the payment of any non-domestic rates due on your beach hut. If you receive a rates bill, it will tell you how you can pay.

Licence instalment payments must be made on the due date. If not, you’ll have to pay the full outstanding amount immediately or risk losing your beach hut licence.

Cancel your licence

Beach huts in Poole
