Rate Direct Debit Application

Apply to pay your rates by Direct Debit 

Paying your rates by direct debit arrangement is a convenient and easy way for you to ensure that your rates are always paid on time. 

You can elect to pay rates and charges by one of the following options using direct debit:

  • Four instalments – the four dates detailed on your rate notice
  • Nine monthly payments commencing September to May on the 15th of the month, unless this date falls on a weekend or public holiday, in which case the direct debit will be the next business day

Direct debit dates are fixed, and amounts are calculated to pay your annual rates and charges over the financial year. Payments can only be deducted from a cheque or savings account. We cannot process a direct debit from a credit card.

Once you have established the direct debit arrangement for your rates, it will remain in place year after year until you advise the Shire to cease the arrangement. If you do change your bank account details, please submit another direct debit form.

Please be aware Council does not direct debit by credit card.
