    A SMARTER WAY TO PAY: A no fuss way to pay rates for the current financial year, on a weekly or fortnightly basis. 

    Residents who struggle to manage their household budget when their rates bill comes in can breathe a little easier by adopting a Smarter Way to Pay. A Smarter Way to Pay has been introduced by the City of Kalamunda as a no fuss way to pay rates over a 12 month period via direct debit, on a weekly, fortnightly basis from April to March of each year. The rates Department will determine an amount that would be required to ensure that your rates are paid by the last instalment date which is usually in February, and the amount will then continue to be deducted for the next years rates.
    There is a $20.00 set up cost for ratepayers who adopt the payment method. Payments are reviewed annually in March. The system aims to ease the burden that a lump sum or limited instalment payment program can cause.
    To take advantage of this Smarter Way to Pay, or for more details please contact the City Rates Department on (08) 9257 9999.
