Ratepayers of Mount Alexander Shire have some extra time to pay their rates before interest starts to accrue, given COVID-19 restrictions have kept people at home over the past week.

The fourth 2020/2021 rate instalment was due on Monday 31 May. However, Mount Alexander Shire Council is extending the interest-free period until Monday 14 June, due to the 7 Day Circuit Breaker restrictions.

This will give people some extra time to pay the final rates instalment for this financial year.

“We know that many people in our community still like to pay their rates in person at a local Post Office or at our Customer Service Centre, while other people may be having difficulty paying their rates at this time,” said Carolyn Ross, Executive Manager Corporate Services.

“There are still a range of options available to pay your rates but we’re offering two weeks interest free to give people a bit more time to get their payments organised,” she said.

Even under lockdown there will still many choices available to pay your rates.

Payments can be made via BPAY or BPAY View (internet banking), Council’s website, or by calling Customer Service during business hours. Australia Post offices have been open for essential business.

As restrictions in Regional Victoria start to ease, Council’s Customer Service Centre will reopen to customers on Friday 4 June for limited face-to-face services such as payments and animal registrations, under COVIDSafe conditions.

You can also elect to have regular direct payments deducted from your bank account to cover rates instalments.
If you are having trouble paying your rates please call us to discuss your options.
