Interest on overdue rates
Failure to pay either the quarterly instalments or payment in full by the due dates will result in interest being charged from date on which each missed instalment is due.
For those ratepayers who elect to pay in full, where payment is not made by 15 February 2018, interest will be calculated as though the rates were being paid by instalments.
