Request for Rates Payment Arrangement
If you are unable to pay your rates in full or by instalments you can apply to the City for a payment arrangement. The outstanding balance can be paid by making regular payments weekly, fortnightly, monthly or bimonthly.
In order for the City to accept this arrangement, the regular payments must cover the amount of the rates and service charges levied for the year, including rates arrears by the end of the current financial year (30 June). Other conditions may apply.
Payment arrangements incur a $30 admin fee, plus late payment interest at 5% per annum on the General Rates, and late payment interest of 11% per annum on the Emergency Services Levy, which will accrue over the arrangement period until paid in full.
Missed or late payments will result in this payment arrangement being cancelled, and further debt recovery action may be taken.
Please use our Rates Calculator to determine the amount you will be required to pay. The calculator incorporates your current outstanding amount and interest (as detailed below)
