What types of concessions are available?

You have the choice of either a REBATE on, or the DEFERMENT of, your Annual Water Service Charges, Local Government Rates and Fire and Emergency Services Levy.

To obtain a Rebate on your Rates, Water Service Charges and Emergency Services Levy you will need to pay the amount indicated on your notice by 30 June of the current financial year. (Refer to section How do I apply for a concession?)

Your Rates, Water Service Charges and Emergency Services Levy will automatically be deferred, where you are eligible, if the amount required to be paid to receive a rebate is not paid by 30 June of the current financial year.

The deferment option is not available where the property:

  • is occupied under a life tenancy or right of residency under the terms of a Probated Will of a deceased estate or
  • subject to co-ownership other than with a spouse/de facto partner) or
  • you have eligibility for a Senior Concession only.

Please note, if the deferment option is not available, you must pay the amount indicated on your Rates or Water Service Charges notice before 30 June of the current financial year to receive the rebate.
