Ratepayers have a right under Part III Division 3 of the
Valuation of Land Act 1960 to object to the valuation

How Your Rates Are Calculated
The Moorabool Shire Council bases its rate calculation on
the Capital Improved Value (CIV) of each individual property.
The formula for calculating general rates, excluding any
additional charges or arrears, is as follows:
General Rates = CIV x Rate in the CIV Dollar.
The rate in the CIV dollar is set by Council as part of its
annual budget process and may include differential rates
for different types of properties. Differential rates allow
Council to levy different rates for different types of property,
which allows for a more equitable rating structure. If
you consider that your property is being rated under the
incorrect differential rate, please contact Council's Revenue
Services Unit to discuss.
Payment of Rates and Charges
Payments in Full received after the 15th February each year,
will be charged interest as if an instalment account, from the
date that the instalment amount would have been due.
Payments by Instalments received after the relevant due
dates will be charged interest from the due dates.
Payments not received by the due dates whether by post,
at an agency, or in person will be considered overdue.
Council will not accept any responsibility for mail delays or
Due Dates for Full Payment or Instalment
Please remember that, if you are wanting to pay by the
legislated quarterly instalment dates, to be eligible for this
option, you must ensure that the quoted amount for the first
instalment is paid in full by the due date.
Failure to meet this requirement will result in our Rating
System flagging your property as a full payment account,
meaning all rates and charges must be paid in full by the full
payment due date to avoid incurring penalty interest and/or
debt collection costs.
The annual legislative payment dates are as follows:
1st Instalment due date 30 September
2nd Instalment due date 30 November
3rd Instalment due date 28 February
4th Instalment due date 31 May
Full Payment due date
If this payment date falls on the weekend or public holiday,
the payment will be required on the next business day.
