Card fees

The credit card fees apply from 1 April 2019 with the surcharges not subject to GST. Before you finalise your payment, you'll be advised of the total amount including the fee.

Transaction fees are applied for some credit and debit card payments to Council. The amount depends on which card you're using and the payment option. The fee is calculated as a fixed percentage of your bill.

The fee is limited to what it costs us to accept the payment. We review all fees annually.
