HOW DO I PAY MY RATES AND WATER CHARGES?

Payment in Full

One off Payment - If you are making a single payment for full year’s rates and charges, your payment is due on 31 August.

Payment by Quarterly Installments - The due dates and the amounts payable for each installment are shown on your Rates and Charges Notice. You will be sent an installment notice for the second, third and fourth installment one month before payment is due. The due dates for rate installments are always 31 August, 30 November, 28 February and 31 May each year.

What happens if my payments are late?

If your quarterly payment is not paid in full by the due date, you may be charged interest on the amount overdue. The interest charge is simple interest calculated daily, at the rate of 8% per annum. Please ensure your payment reaches us by the due date shown on your notice.  If you are paying by mail, you should make allowances for postage time.
