Payment options


You can pay your rates online using Visa or MasterCard.

Direct debit

To set up a direct debit, please fill in the online direct debit form or download the direct debit application form (PDF 206 KB) and return it to us.

Please make sure we receive your application at least seven days before the due date.

Direct debit payments are processed on Thursdays:

  • weekly payments are debited every Thursday
  • fortnightly payments are debited every second Thursday
  • monthly payments are debited on the third Thursday of the month.

If the Thursday is a public holiday, the payments will be processed the next working day.

To defer, cancel or adjust the amount of a direct debit, you must let us know in writing at least five working days before the next debit date.

To update the account details on a current direct debit, you need to fill in a new application form. You must return the form to us at least five working days before the next debit date.

Direct debit is not available for credit card accounts or accounts outside of Australia.

Direct debit does not set up a payment arrangement for any arrears. Please call us on 07 3412 5230 to discuss arrears payment options.

If you do not pay your rates, we will take the necessary action to gain settlement of the outstanding amount. This may involve legal action or the sale of the property.

If you receive a notice from us about overdue rates, please discuss it with your recoveries officer or ask to be put through to our recoveries team to discuss a suitable payment plan or other options for the settlement of your account.
