Pay your rates by 21 August and receive a discount
  • Monday 20 July 2009

With Sunshine Coast ratepayers receiving their rate notices in the mail over the coming week, ratepayers are being reminded not to forget to pay before the Friday 21 August due date to take advantage of the discount.

And for those ratepayers who cannot make payment by the due date, just give council a call to enter into an arrangement to pay by instalments. As long as you meet the conditions of the arrangement, council will not charge any interest on this current half-year’s rates.

Council continues to make it as convenient as possible for residents to pay their rates through a number of different payment methods.

Pay online with Post Billpay – choosing to pay online via council’s website means you can make your payment securely at anytime of the day or night in the comfort of your own home or office.

Residents can also choose to pay via BPay with participating financial institutions.

Those who do not have access to the Internet still have the convenience of paying by credit card over the phone. Phone 131 816 from anywhere in Australia and follow the prompts.

Customers can pay in person at any branch of Australia Post – by cash, cheque or from your nominated account or pay in person at one of council’s customer service centres, between 8.30 am and 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday.

Customers can also mail their cheque or money order to their local Sunshine Coast Council office.

For all online or over-the-phone payments, your customer reference number is located on your rate notice.

For more information about your rate notice, contact your local council office or visit council’s website at
