About your Rates

City of Cockburn Ratepayers enjoy one of the lowest levels of Council rates in the metropolitan area.

The amount of rates varies in line with the value of your property - the higher the value of your property, the more rates you pay. Values are assessed on the basis of the annual rental income potential of each residence (gross rental value) which is reviewed every 3 years by the Valuer Generals Office, or on un-improved value of vacant land (reviewed annually).

Council uses the Valuer General's values to calculate the amount of rates due. Additional charges include rubbish service and mobile bin levy where applicable.

Frequently Asked Questions information page, can answer many of your questions also.

Standard options for payment include:

  • Single payment by the due date of 2 September 2016
  • Four (Quarterly) installments - $5 admin fee per instalment applies if you pay in installments (excluding pensioners/seniors) Lost Potential interest of 3.5%

Payment Difficulties

Council advises that if you are having financial difficulty and will be unable to participate in the Rates Instalment Scheme, you can make a written application to the Chief Executive Officer to enter into an alternative arrangement.
