When you join the Rates Easypay system you will receive a letter confirming your bank account details, commencement date and frequency of your payments. Your rates instalment notice will inform you of the amounts and due dates for the payment of rates.

On payment days, the money you owe will be automatically paid out of your bank account. All transactions will show up on your regular bank account statement. The Council will amend the amounts debited from your account each year without further action on your part. You will be notified of all changes in advance.
