Rates relief

Council is offering rates relief to businesses and residents experiencing hardship because of the economic impacts of coronavirus. The assistance is offered to all ratepayers, including owner occupiers, non-owner occupiers and businesses.

As well as a rates freeze for the first six months of the new financial year, rates can be deferred for up to six months. Once rates are deferred, interest will only apply to any unpaid amount after the due date of the January 2021 rate account. To enquire about deferral or to make a payment plan, phone Council on 07 3403 8888.
