Your rates are calculated based on your property’s value. Landgate independently values your property every three to for years. You rates will vary according to the Gross Rental Valuation (GRV) set by Landgate through the Valuer General’s Office. Rates make up about 32% of council revenue. The amount to be collected from rates is the balance of the Council’s expenditure requirement, less other revenues from fees, charges, grants, borrowings and transfers. Once the council determines expenditure, we set a rate in the dollar to be levied against all properties.

50% concession

You might be eligible for a rate deferral or rebate of up to 50% on your rates and Emergency Service Levy if you:

  • Seniors card, Commonwealth Health Seniors Card and/or Pension Concession Card, OR

  • Lived at the property as of 1 July and it is your place of residence

25% concession

You could receive up to 25% off your Annual Water Service Charge and Rates if you:

  • Possess a seniors card

The deferment option is not available and the rebate will be limited to a maximum amount.

Pro-rata provisions

Things you should know

You can only claim a concession or deferment (where eligible) on one property in any one charging or rating year, being the property owned and occupied as at 1 July. Where arrears of your Annual Water Service Charges or Local Government rates exist, a concession or deferment may be available where you enter into and satisfy, a payment arrangement to clear the arrears.  

We understand that sometimes, life can be tough. Getting assistance and support is important. If you’re experiencing financial hardship, please contact our rates department as soon as you receive your notes. We can help you set up a payment schedule to avoid the additional legal costs.

If you have outstanding payments on your account we may recover the funds with legal action.
