How are your Rates Calculated?

Local Authority Rates are based upon the Gross Rental Value (GRV) and Unimproved Values (UV) determined by the Valuer Generals Office. Rates are calculated by multiplying the properties GRV and UV by the applicable rate in the dollar, set by council.

If you believe your property has been incorrectly valued you may lodge an objection within 60 days after issue of your rates notice with the Valuer Generals Office phone: (08) 9429 8400.

Who Pays Council Rates?

Rates are the responsibility of the current owner of the property. New owners and those transferring ownership do have a legal responsibility to inform the Shire when a change in ownership or address occurs.

What is an Emergency Service Levy?

The Emergency Services Levy (ESL) pays for services provided by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services . Collectively, this fee provides the community with development and maintenance to Fire Stations, Voluntary Fire Brigades, State Emergency Services, and Voluntary Emergency Services.
