Rates

​​​​​Key Dates

Rates are billed in four instalments for the rating year which begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. Your rates invoice will be posted or emailed to you on the first day of the month that your rates are due.

To avoid penalties, payments need to be made in full by the following due dates:

  • 20 August – first instalment due
  • 20 November – second instalment due
  • 20 February – third instalment due
  • 20 May – fourth instalment due

A 10% penalty will be added to any amount of the current instalment remaining unpaid after the due date. An additional charge of 10% will be added to any unpaid rates from previous years.

You can opt in to receive your invoice via e-mail. Opt In to receive your rates invoice by e-mail here!



Public Rating Information Database (RID)

The Local Government Rating Act (2002) limits public access to name and postal address information that we hold for rating purposes.

The legislation requires that name and postal address details are made accessible to the public unless the property owner advises Council in writing that they want the information withheld. Financial transactions cannot be viewed by the public e.g. whether rates have been paid.

The name and postal address information became publicly available from December 31, 2005. Please note that the name and address information will only be made available at our offices and that bulk collection of names and addresses is not permitted under the Act.

If you are happy for your details to appear in the rating information database no action is required on your part.

Ratepayers wishing to withhold their names and/or postal address information must notify us. You can apply online to withhold your name and address from the publicly available rating database.
