Help for ratepayers financially affected by COVID-19

​For 2020/2021 we proposed to allow ratepayers who are financially impacted by COVID-19 to put off paying up to $20,000 of their 2020/2021 rates per property until 30 June 2022 and giving a further 12 months to pay off the balance.

We also proposed that $5000 of rates per property deferred from individual ratepayers’ 2019/2020 fourth quarter instalment, could also be carried over.

Applications closed on 31 December 2020.
