Plans and instalments

If you are unable to pay your rates in full, you may use the Four Instalment Payment Option or contact the Shire to discuss arranging an individualised rates payment plan.  An individual rates payment plan will incur an administration fee (penalty interest still applies).

Four Instalment Payment Option

Paying by instalments can help smooth out all of your bill payments, particularly if you're budgeting.

The Four Instalment Payment Option allows you to pay your rates in four instalments. Certain conditions apply when choosing this option:

  1. You must pay the first instalment by the due date specified on the Notice. Otherwise, this option will no longer be available to you and you will need to pay the amount in full.
  2. For the financial year 2023/2024, administration fees will be applied to instalment payments with an interest rate of 3% and $7.50 per installment.
  3. For the financial year 2023/2024, interest will be applied to instalment payments at a rate of 7%.

Individualised Payment Plans

If you are unable to pay your rates in full or via the instalment option due to financial hardship, you can apply to the Shire for a special arrangement. Please complete this form and return it to the Shire Administration Centre.
