When can I pay my rates?
Rates are normally payable by 10 instalments from May to February in any financial year. If paying by a single lump sum, this must be made on or before 30 September in that year. If a bill is issued during the financial year, the amount of instalments will reduce. For example, if it is issued in June, there will be 8 instalments from July to February. Where it is issued after 31 December, the amount payable is due in a single instalment within fourteen days.
