Payment Dates

The rating year is from 1 July to 30 June. We issue annual rate notices each year in August and payment is by four equal Instalments or one lump sum (full payment) amount due 15 February 2022. To be eligible for instalments, you must pay the first instalment in full on or before the due date.

There will be interest if you miss the due date for paying your rates. Interest on unpaid rates, charges, and levies will be calculated daily from the due date. Interest will continue to grow at 10% until you pay rates, charges, and levies in full.

Rate Capping

The Victorian Government's rate cap is a 1.5% increase. Your property rates and charges may have changed because:
  • the value of your property compared to other properties in the municipal district;
  • the application of any differential rate by Council;
  • the addition of other rates and charges not covered by the Victorian Government's rate cap
