    Overdue Rates

    Council charges interest on overdue rates, charges and levies, in accordance with Section 172 of the Local Government Act 1989. Interest is charged at the penalty interest rate which is currently 10% pa, as fixed under Section 2 of the Penalty Interest Rates Act 1983.

    If rates are not paid by the respective due dates, then interest is charged on and from the date on which each missed payment is due. Interest continues to be payable until the payment or upon the recovery of the rates, charges and levies.
