How to pay your rates

There are several ways to pay your Glen Eira City Council rates, including online, BPAY, phone, direct debit and Australia Post.

On This Page

The default option for paying your rates is via quarterly instalments, which are due on the following dates:

  • 30 September
  • 30 November
  • 28 February
  • 31 May

If, for convenience, you wish to pay all instalments in advance by 30 September, you may.

We offer a number of payment methods for paying your rates.

Online

Make online credit card payments using our secure online payments portal.

Phone

Make a Mastercard or Visa payment by calling 1300 789 726.

Our phone payment line is open 24 hours and is available from most phones. You’ll be charged the cost of a local call, with mobiles costing extra.

Phone payments are recorded on statements as ‘Glen Eira City Council’.

Direct debit

Paying via direct debit means you won’t need to keep track of due dates or worry about late payments. We’ll deduct 10 equal instalments from your credit card or bank account on the first working day of the month, commencing in September and ending in June.

If you would like us to deduct payments from your credit card, register with our secure registration site by entering your Bpay reference number on your rates notice. 

To register or update existing credit card details, select Rates direct debit below.

Any arrears from previous financial years must be cleared before this option can be activated. If you’d like us to deduct payments from your bank account, download the Direct debit request form (PDF, 134KB)**, and forward to Council.

** If you are already on direct debit from your bank account there is no need to reapply unless you wish to switch to credit card. If your bank account details have changed you will need to reapply using this form.

If you want to change your account details, we need to receive the Direct Debit Request form at least 14 days before the next debit day. If you want to cancel your direct debit arrangement, we need to receive written authority at least 14 days before the next debit day.
