Rates Remission and Postponement Policy

Our Rates Remission and Postponement Policy addresses financial assistance and support for ratepayers, as well as anomalies and other schemes.

​Policy objectives

The objectives of the Rates Remission and Postponement Policy are:

  • to provide ratepayers with some financial or other assistance, where they might otherwise have difficulty meeting their obligations
  • to address circumstances where the rating system results in anomalies in the incidence of rates
  • to support the achievement of our broader policy objectives.
