Direct Debit Rates Payments

Council offers a direct debit plan to pay your rates via your nominated bank account or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club or American Express). 

The direct debit payments are processed for the instalment amounts shown on your rate notice on September 30, November 30, February 28 and May 31. A reminder notice will still be sent to you for information purposes.

New applications or amendments to existing arrangements must be made seven (7) days prior to the instalment payment dates.

No credit card information is maintained in Council’s system/s.
