We know it can be hard to pay your rates sometimes. We want to help you manage this, and so we will consider requests to lift penalties. This is called “remission” or credit.
You may be eligible for penalties to be credited if:
You need to complete a Penalty Remission Application Form(PDF, 117KB).
To complete the form you will need your rate account number, valuation number and the property location. These can be found on your rates invoice.
It will take approximately 20 working days to process your application.
Once we have processed your application, we will write to you to let you know the outcome of your application.
