Rates relief

Since April 2020, Council has worked hard to support our city through the pandemic. We've offered deferral of rates, a freeze on increases for the first half of 2020-21 and a $250 JobSeeker Rebate for eligible ratepayers.

To help the city recover, ratepayers will also receive a one-off rebate of the savings declared as a result of Council's Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade project.

Rates deferral can be requested until 31 December 2020. If you are struggling to pay your rates and would like to make a payment plan, phone Council on 07 3403 8888.

If you are a local business, visit Business in Brisbane for further support.
