Rates remission

A rates remission is the process of reducing the amount of money owed to a rate bill or waiving the bill altogether.

There are three reasons why ratepayers and organisations may be granted a rate remission. These include:

  • Cultural purposes.
  • Sporting organisations.
  • Religious organisations.

You need to apply for rates remission in writing and state why you should receive a remission on your rates (General Rate and UAGC). Please note, service charges will still apply. Requests for a remission should be referred to the Rates Administrator and if the request for remission is approved, this will take effect from the next rating year.
