When we apply penalties

If you do not pay on time, we will add a rates penalty of 10 per cent of the amount left to pay.

We apply the following penalties:

  • If unpaid by the due date, 10 per cent of the unpaid part of an instalment.
  • A further 10 per cent at the end of each rating year to unpaid rates and penalties.
  • A further 10 per cent to any amounts still unpaid six months after the end of the rating year.

Our tip

We credit payments towards the oldest overdue amount.

​In some cases, you may be eligible for a refund on a rates penalty.

See Remission of rates penalties.
