If you wish to pay your rates and charges in full for the financial year, payment is due on or before 31 August each year.
The due dates for quarterly instalments 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 for each of your instalments.
If your quarterly payment is not paid in full by the due date interest will accrue on the outstanding amount.
Interest charges are calculated at 7.5% per annum on a daily basis.
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.
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 you can make a mutually suitable arrangement.
