Direct Debit Authorisation

Set up or change a direct debit payment by 30 September to automatically pay your rates each year. There are two options: pay in full on the due date of 31 October or the tri-annual option of paying in three equal payments.

A 10% penalty will apply to the full amount of unpaid rates if a direct debit payment is dishonoured.

The digital form can be completed below or if you require a printable version it can be downloaded. Download the Manual Direct Debit Form.

If you wish to set up more than one property on the same direct debit, please attach a file with the property details to this form, or get in touch with our rates team


To be eligible for the tri-annual option, you must have paid any balance owing from previous years before submitting a direct debit authority form. Rates penalties will not apply to current year rates using this option. Your annual rates assessment notice details the date each direct debit will be processed.
