Rates discount deadline approaching

Date published: 11 May 2018

Domestic ratepayers who want to receive the early payment discount are encouraged to pay their bill as soon as possible. A four per cent discount is available if payment is received in full by Friday, 18 May 2018.

Qualifying for discount

The discount is available to ratepayers of occupied or vacant domestic properties. 

To qualify for this discount you must:

  • pay your rate bill in one full amount
  • allow a minimum of five working days for payment to reach Land & Property Services (LPS) by Friday 18 May

If you choose to pay your bill in instalments you will not be eligible for a discount.

How to pay

You can pay your rate bill online with a debit or credit card.

Direct Debit is another way to pay, and you can set this up online. It means you don’t have to worry about missing a payment or getting a payment to LPS on time.
