Billing Schedule

All late payments are subject to a 5% late penalty if not paid by April 2 and a further 5% if not paid by July 2. If the due date falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, pay the next business day without penalty. Pay on time to avoid penalties. 

Please note that if a partial payment is made before the due date, only the amount outstanding after the due date will be subject to a penalty.

The amount is based on an annual flat-rate and property dwelling type for the calendar year, January 1 to December 31.
