How we calculate your rates

Council uses the Capital Improved Value (CIV) to calculate your rates. 

This is simply the value of the land, building and any other improvements in respect to each rateable property.

The Capital Improved Value is multiplied by the rate in the dollar to calculate the general rates to be paid by each assessment.

For example:

Capital Improved Value (CIV): $750,000 multiplied by the general rate in the dollar of 0.0017137 cents in the dollar = $1,285.25 rates payable.

For 2021-2022 the following rates in the dollar have been declared:

  • Vacant Land Differential Rate: .0051411
  • Retirement Village Differential Rate: .0012853
  • Other Land Differential Rate: .0017137
  • Commercial Differential Rate: .0042842
  • Industrial Differential Rate: .0045413
