Interest charges will be applied to all overdue rates or charges under section 133 of the Local Government Regulation 2012. The interest will be compound interest, calculated on daily rates. For a day on or after 1 July 2024 the interest rate is 12.35% per annum. To avoid interest charges you must either pay your rates in full by the due date or establish an arrangement to pay your rates by instalments (see 'Payment arrangement' below) prior to the due date on the rate notice.
