How to Pay your Rates

Pay the full amount of your rates (including any arrears) by the first instalment date and you will be automatically included in the Early Bird Draw. Eligible ratepayers can win a refund up to the value of $700.00 of their rates. (Government Departments, Council Staff and Elected Members are not eligible). 

If your payment is not received by the due date, the account will be in arrears. Accounts in arrears will incur a penalty that is calculated on a daily basis on the outstanding amount ONLY, from the date on which the missed instalment was due until the date the payment is made in full.

Penalties for late payments are charged at 9% per annum.
