Council has increased Gross Rental Valued (GRV) rates (Town Sites) by 5% with Unimproved Valued (UV) rates (Rural) having a 5% increase also. Council is still offering a 5% discount, if the full rates account is paid within 35 days from the date of service. The date of service for 2016/2017 is the 26th August 2016. The final day for ratepayers to pay to receive the discount is 4:30pm on Monday 3rd October 2016.
Rates will become due and payable 35 days from the date of issue, being the same date as the discount entitlement closes, 3rd October 2016. Rates outstanding after this date will incur a daily penalty percentage rate of 0.027397%, based on an annual rate of 10%.
Council also offers ratepayers the option to pay their rates account by either two or four instalments. To take advantage of the instalment option, a small interest and administration charge is made on each instalment payment. The instalment interest rate for 2016/2017 adopted by Council is 5%, with an administration fee of $5 per instalment. The due dates for the instalment options will be as follows:
- 1st Instalment 3rd October 2016
- 2nd Instalment 5th December 2016
- 3rd Instalment 6th February 2017
- 4th Instalment 3rd April 2017
The above dates are applicable to either the two-instalment option or the four-instalment option. So if you choose the two-instalment payment option, your payments will be made on the 3rd October 2016 and the 5th December 2016.
Should a ratepayer not meet one of the instalment payments, penalty interest will immediately start to accrue, at the above daily rate, from the date after the instalment due date until the instalment payment is made. Council offers the below payment facility.
