Payment of Rates

Quarterly payments due

  • 4 September 2020
  • 4 December 2020
  • 5 March 2021
  • 4 June 2021

A rates notice will be sent to ratepayers 30 days prior to each due date.  A ratepayer may also pay their rates in a single instalment due by September of that year.

The Local Government Act 1999 provides that councils impose a penalty of a 2% fine on any payment for rates that are received late.  A payment that continues to be late is then charged an interest rate, set each year according to a formula in the Act, for each month it continues to be late.

Any ratepayer who may, or is likely to, experience difficulty with meeting the standard payment arrangements is invited to contact Council on (08) 8721 0400 to discuss making alternative payment arrangements.
