Your Council Rates explained

Inforgraphic of how rates are calculated

The rates you pay are a proportion-ate share of what the City needs to provide local services, facilities and support.

Step 1 - Total rates re-quired to run the Local Government

Cost of running the City of Wanneroo 
Minus revenue from sources other than rates (e.g. grants, hire/service charges, rentals) 
Equals revenue required from rates to run the City. 

Step 2 - Rate in the dollar calculated

Revenue required from rates 
Divided by the combined rental value of all rateable properties (supplied by the State Valuer Gen-eral) 
Equals the rate in the dollar. 

Step 3 - What you pay

The rate in the dollar 
Multiplied by your property's value as set by the State Valuer General either Gross Rental Value or Unimproved Value 
Equals the year's rates to keep your City running.
