How Do I Pay My Rates?

View from Warragamba Lookout

Council must receive your payment in full by the 31st of August each year.  Full payment avoids incurring daily interest charges.  You may choose instalments instead.

If you choose to pay your rates in four instalments, a reminder notice will be sent to you one month prior to the instalment due date.

Rates instalment due dates are:

  • 31 August
  • 30 November
  • 28 February
  • 31 May

Failure to pay your rate instalments by their due dates will result in an interest charge. Interest accrues on a daily basis at 7.5% per annum on any outstanding rates and charges.

Ratepayers who, due to hardship, are not in a position to settle their rate account in full or by four instalments, can make alternative arrangements to pay by agreement with Council.
