Rates arrears

When you elect to pay your rates in full you must complete your payment by 15 February each year.

Rates arrears are unpaid amounts from previous rating years.

Rates arrears continue to attract penalty interest until you pay them in full, which means the debt will increase if not paid.

You must pay all rate arrears immediately. Interest will continue to accrue and be added to the account on a regular basis.

Interest charges and due dates

If a rate notice has arrears showing, this does not mean that you have until the due date to pay.

The due dates are for current rates only and we will continue to pursue arrears through the period of a rate issue (please refer to the back of your rate notice).
