Instalment options

You can pay your City of Greater Dandenong rates in four or nine instalments.

Paying your rates by four instalments

Council will issue your rates notice in four instalments. 

Council will issue your initial rates notice for the first instalment. Council will send reminder notices the second, third and fourth instalments.

Instalment payments are due on these dates:

  • First instalment: 30 September 2022
  • Second instalment: 30 November 2022
  • Third instalment: 28 February 2023
  • Fourth instalment: 31 May 2023

To avoid interest being charged, each of the four instalment amounts shown on your notice need to be paid by those due dates. You can also pre-pay your instalments at any time. 

Contact council to discuss other rate payment options. 

Paying your rates by nine instalments

You can choose to pay your rates in nine instalments via direct debit.

The first instalment is due on 30 September 2022.
