To assist City maintenance and the provision of a wide range of community services, all property owners are required to pay rates and charges.
Use the links below to learn about how rates are calculated, your payment options and more.
What are local government rates?
Rates are an annual payment by residents for living in a local government area. It is common for local governments throughout Australia to charge rates.
Also included on your annual rates notice are charges for other necessary community services. Not all of these additional charges apply to all residents.
Appealing your rates
The valuation of Land Act 1976 (as amended) Part IV sets out the manner in which objections and appeals may be instituted regarding valuations (GRV or UV). If you believe your valuation is incorrect; you can query it.
Pensioner or Senior concessions
Eligible pensioners and seniors may be entitled to claim up to 50% off their Annual Rates and Emergency Services Levy or defer payment.
To make it as easy as possible to pay your rates, the City of Gosnells offers several different payment methods.
If you're unable to pay your rates in full, you may pay by either the four instalment payment plan or by one of our informal payment plans.
