Annual rates notices are issued for each property based on the information held as of 1 July. After this, if there is a change which affects the amount payable, the City must issue an interim notice.

Interim notices are issued between October and April each year for a variety of reasons, including:

  • A new property
  • Additions to the property
  • Demolition of buildings
  • Subdivision or amalgamation
  • New or removed services charges i.e Refuse / Recycling, Pool Inspection fee
  • New Strata or Survey Strata

In most cases the property is re-valued by the Valuer General's Office. Please contact the Valuer General's Office on 08 9273 7373 or visit their website, if you have any queries in regards to the valuation changes.

If your property is on settlement when the interim notice is issued, a settlement statement will be issued to your settlement agent. Please contact your settlement agent as they are often holding monies in trust to pay the rates.

For more information on interim rates and how they are calculated please view the Interim Rates Explained brochure.

NOTE: Please ensure your residential address is current as Interim notices can only be posted by hardcopy mail and not emailed.
