We give you two convenient options for paying your council rates bill. The first is wage advance, which allows you to borrow up to $500 of your wage before payday. This can give you some breathing room, allowing you to cover part of your council rates bill, along with any other expenses you need help with that month. Once payday comes around, you’ll get the rest of your wage. It’s that simple!
If you’d prefer to spread your council rates out, Wagetap offers our split bill feature. With this feature, you can split your bill up into a stress-free payment plan and cover up to $600 of your bill upfront. If you borrow less than $300 to cover your bill, your payment plan consists of three equal payments that coincide with your upcoming paydays. Borrowing over $300 will split your bill up into four payments. Of course, you can always pay early if you wish.
Council rates are often charged to property owners twice per year, usually around the months of January and July. When you cover your council rates with Wagetap, your charges and fees will be going toward services such as: - Roads - Public transport - Waste collection - Parks and recreation spaces - Community facilities - Libraries With Wagetap, this bill can be split up and paid throughout the year, making it much more manageable than a lump-sum payment.
