Payment by Arrangement

If you consider that you cannot pay your rate account when due for payment, you can apply to make an arrangement with Council to pay off your rates and water consumption accounts by way of weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments.

Interest will accrue and be added to the balance each month and Council does require that the account be cleared in full by the end of the rating period i.e. 31st December for the half yearly notice, or 30th June for the second half yearly notice.

Download the Application to pay your Rates by Arrangement form and policy. 

Please note that if no arrangement form is lodged, outstanding rates or water accounts will incur the consequence of legal action. 
Direct Debit

To ease the burden of your annual rate payment, you can set up a Direct Debit payment whereby Council will process an Automatic deduction from your nominated bank account on any Friday - weekly, fortnightly or monthly, for any amount that you decide upon. The credit that you accumulate will be applied to your rate account and will appear on your next rate notice.
