Paying my rates

How can I pay?

We have several payment options available to you when paying your rates. However, our preferred methods are online payments, Direct Debit or BPay as they are more efficient and cost less administratively, leaving more of the rate income for direct service to the community.

Direct Debit

This is a safe and convenient option. You can register to pay your rates by completing a Direct Debit Request Form. Payments will be then be deducted from your nominated bank account when due. Our service agreement has also changed.


Payments can be made directly from your bank account. Please contact your financial institution for further information if this option is not available to you. 

Please note when making a payment using BPay, remember to enter the biller code and reference number. They appear next to the BPay logo on the front of your rates notice.


Payments can be made using BPOINT by calling 1300 276 468.

Please note that a surcharge applies to all payments made via credit cards. 

Pay in person 

At any of the following locations:

  • Customer Service Centre - 2 Pulteney Street TAREE. Pay by cash, cheque, EFTPOS or credit card. 8:30am - 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
  • Wingham Library - Wynter Street WINGHAM. Pay by cheque, EFTPOS or credit card. 10am - 4pm, Monday to Friday.

For your convenience, rates can also be paid at Australia Post outlets (credit cards not accepted). However, we ask that you keep in mind the commission that is paid to Australia Post for this service. This means, that not all of your rating dollar is spent on local infrastructure and other services provided by Council.   


Payments can be made by cheque or by money order. Please remember to include the remittance section of your Rates Notice.
