The annual rate notice is issued at the end of July each year. Rates can be paid in full by 31 August, or in quarterly installments due 31 August, 30 November, 28 February and 31 May.
You may choose to make regular periodic payments (weekly, fortnightly, monthly, etc.).
It is important that when calculating your periodic payments you ensure that each of the four installments will be paid by the due dates in order to avoid interest accruing against overdue amounts.
Customers who pay by quarterly installments will receive installment reminder notices prior to the due date.
Customers who pay their rates in full by 31 August are entered into council’s Early Ratepayers Prize Draw for the opportunity to win some great prizes.
Council offers several options for the payment of rates. The payment options include; credit or debit accounts, cash or cheques and are listed on the back of each rate notice.
