Direct Debit ensures your rates are automatically paid from your savings or cheque account every fortnight. Plus, it's a simple way to smooth out all your bill payments, to help with budgeting.
City of Swan offers a direct debit in the event you are unable to pay your rates in full or via the four instalment plan. This payment arrangement can be paid on a fortnightly or weekly basis. To set up a direct debit you will need to complete the online direct debit request form below.
Once this is in place, it's really important that you adhere to the payment arrangement. The estimated payment including estimated penalty interest at 3%, will spread the cost of your remaining balance in equal weekly payments over the rest of this financial year. The Emergency Services Levy (ESL) penalty interest rate is determined by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services’ Minister and for the 2021/22 it is set at 7% per annum (acrruing daily on overdue ESL).
The City will send confirmation in writing of the direct debit payment arrangement within 10 working days of receiving your completed form.
Please Note: Terms and conditions apply, please read the Online Direct Debit Application Terms and Conditions and Service Agreement.
Reinstating the direct debit due to a rejected payment/s cancellation will incur a $55 fee (Pensioners and Seniors excluded).
