Pay your rates

A ratepayer may elect to pay rates in full, in two instalments, or in four instalments as per the options on the rate notice issued at the start of the financial year.

Payment in full or the first instalment must be paid within 35 days of the issue of the rate notice.

An administration fee and discounted interest charge are applicable to all instalment plans, to cover administrative costs.

A late payment interest charge (currently 11% p.a. calculated daily) will apply to any amount that is overdue 36 days after the rate notice is issued.

Formal procedures for collection of unpaid rates, including legal action where necessary, may apply when ratepayers do not meet their obligations.
