Arrears

Payment of arrears must be made immediately unless an agreed payment arrangement is in place.  As penalty interest accrues daily, please contact Council for an updated arrears amount when making payments. You cannot participate in the instalment program unless all arrears are paid in full prior to your first instalment payment.

 

If you do not pay your rates on time you will be charged interest. Refer to the back of your Rate and Valuation Notice for more information.
