Payment of Rates

Instalments

Council rates and charges are payable by either:

  • Four instalments or
  • Ten monthly instalments payable by direct debit only.

Payment of rate instalments by Direct Debit allows you to choose either the four instalments or ten monthly instalments.

The ten monthly instalments are debited from your nominated bank account on the 15th day of the month from September to June, inclusive.

The quarterly instalment due dates are set by legislation for all Victorian Councils and notices are issued at least 14 days before each instalment due date.

Residents paying their rates in four instalments who wish to use direct debit, your rates will be automatically debited from your bank account on the days shown on the annual notice.

Ratepayers not using the Direct Debit payment method are required to pay by the four instalment options on the following dates:

  • 30 September 2016
  • 30 November 2016
  • 29 February 2017
  • 31 May 2017

Where a due date falls on a weekend or public holiday the instalment will be due on the following business day.

Although Manningham does not offer a lump sum payment option, if you wish to pay your rates in full you must ensure that the respective instalment due dates are satisfied to avoid penalty interest being charged.
