Update for Business Owners

To encourage growth and assist with recovery from the impacts of COVID-19, the NSW Government will increase the small business fees and charges rebate from $1,500 to $2,000.

Funds can be used to offset the costs of eligible NSW and local government fees and charges (i.e. Council rates and other fees) due and paid from 1 March 2021. Eligible businesses or not-for-profits only need to apply for the rebate once, but can submit multiple claims until the full value of $2,000 is reached.

The rebate will be available until 30 June 2022. Access to information on the rebate, eligibility and the application process can be located on the NSW Government website.

  • Receive my rates notices via BPAY View

    To receive your rates notices via BPAY View instead of via post, please apply through your financial institution.

  • Update my name on my Rates and Charges Notice

    Council records reflect the name that is listed on the Certificate of Title for your land.

    If your change of name is due to sale, purchase, marriage or change of name certificate you will need to officially change your name on your land title first. Contact NSW Land Registry Services on telephone 02 8776 3575 or visit their website at for further information.

    If you wish to change the name due to death, Council will update the title of the deceased individual to “Estate of the Late” after receiving a copy of the Death Certificate or advice from Centrelink during the Pension rebate confirmation process.

    Name details are only updated after we receive advice from the NSW Land Registry Services.
