Standard rates penalties:
- Rates instalment penalties applied after each instalment due date - 10% of the instalment amount or the balance, whichever is less
- Rates arrears penalties applied in July and January - 10% of any unpaid balance from the previous rating year
Avoid penalties by ensuring you pay the full amount due by the due date on each invoice or set up a direct debit (DD) with Council that will allow you to spread the payments for the rates over the entire rating year without incurring penalties.
