Request a Rates Deferral/Payment Arrangement

We are working to support our community through the COVID-19 outbreak, including the financial impacts.

Bayside City Council has a hardship policy which can apply to ratepayers who are having difficulty paying their rates as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and would like to defer their rates payment until 31 May 2021.

We also offer payment arrangements for ratepayers who are not affected by COVID-19 but have not been able to pay their rates in full by the stipulated due date.

What do I have to do?

You can request a deferral or payment arrangement by filling out the form below.

We can defer rates to the 30 September 2020. Deferred rates will show as arrears on your future rates notice. Please note, should your situation change in the interim, part payments to suit can be made at any time to reduce the overdue amount.

Please include employment type & current status of the person who has been impacted.
Payment arrangement
A payment arrangement is an agreed arrangement made by you to pay outstanding arrears.
