Paying your rates

Like all council's across the country, rates are levied on a financial year cycle and can be paid in full by the 31 August or you can elect to pay the total amount by four equal quarterly instalments due on 31 August, 30 November, 28 February and the 31 May each year.

The current interest rate on overdue rates is 7.5% per annum.

You can pay your rates in a variety of ways, including through the website, by mail, in person, at Australia Post, by direct debit, over the phone or by using Bpay.

Some pensioners are also eligible for mandatory concessions.
