Your rates


If you wish to pay your rates and charges in full for the financial year, payment is due on or before 31 August.

Should you wish to pay by instalments the due dates for quarterly payments are the same each year:

  • 31 August
  • 30 November
  • 28 February
  • 31 May.

We will send you an instalment notice one month before the payment is due.

Payment options

Late payments

If your quarterly payment is not paid in full by the due date interest will accrue on the outstanding amount.

Interest charges are at a rate of 7.5% per annum calculated daily.

To avoid paying interest charges, please ensure your payment reaches Council by the due date shown on your notice. If you are paying by mail, you should make allowances for postage time.

Payment difficulty

We are sympathetic towards ratepayers who have genuine difficulties in meeting their payment deadlines.

Visit Council in person or contact Council’s Debt Management Officer on 02 6626 7007 if you are experiencing difficulties so we can make a mutually suitable arrangement.
