Rates notices issued in South Gippsland Shire

We understand that due to current circumstances some community members may have concerns as rate notices are issued this week. If you are needing support please contact our Rates team on 5662 9200. Rate revenue helps fund the services Council provides to ratepayers and residents.
Revenues are collected to deliver community services and essential infrastructure such as roads, footpaths, parks and sporting facilities, Council collects rates and charges from all property owners in the municipality
How rates are calculated
This revenue is collected through charging rates to the owner or occupier of every property in the municipality. In setting the rates Council aims to charge rates equitably by using property values to fairly distribute rates charged. Council uses the Capital Improved Value (CIV) of each property as the base for setting differential rates that apply to various property classifications.
The formula for calculating General Rates (that cover most residential properties) is:
- General Rates = Capital Improved Value x Rate in the Dollar
Please note that there is time before rates are due and payments can be made online at South Gippsland Shire Revenue Rates.
