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.

These proposals were widely supported in the public feedback and we have decided to proceed with this scheme.

To find more information and to apply to postpone rates, see Rates postponement for ratepayers financially impacted by COVID-19.
