How to register for eRates

Please note: Once an email address is registered through eRates, no more paper copies will be sent. If you change your mind and would like to go back to receiving paper copies, you can de-register at any time.
If there is more than one owner, we recommend one owner be nominated as the responsible person to receive the emailed notices, and then forward on the email to other owners.
Yes, the Assessment Number, First Name, Last Name and Property Address need to match the ownership of the property in the Shire’s property database.
The notices will be sent to the last registered email address entered through the registration page.
Each property has a unique Assessment number. To register multiple properties each Assessment number will need to be registered individually.
If you own more than one property as a joint owner and you would like a different owner to get the other properties rate notices you can register a different email address for the individual assessments.
Payment methods will stay the same and can be made by BPay, BPoint, cheque via mail, over the counter (cash, cheque or eftpos) or by phone 1300 276 468 (debit and credit cards).

When the eRates notice is transmitted it will contain an unsubscribe link at the bottom.
When you unsubscribe, the Shire will update your records accordingly and you will revert back to being issued with a paper copy.
The Shire’s Revenue Team after processing the subdivision or amalgamation and creating any new Assessment Numbers will write to you and let you know what you need to do.
For new Assessment Numbers created, owners will be required to complete a new eRates registration.
