Direct Debit Authorisation

You may choose the annual option of paying in full by direct debit on the due date of 31 October or the tri-annual option of paying by three equal direct debit payments on 31 October and the last business day in the months of February and June. If 31 October falls on a weekend or public holiday funds will be debited on the closest business day prior to 31 October. Your annual rates assessment notice details the date each direct debit will be processed.

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. Rate penalties will not apply to current year rates using this option.

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