Council Rates Debt Collection

Our debt recovery of overdue council rates is designed to recover the outstanding council rates as quickly as possible to the council. The collection of debts in this sector is guaranteed to be successful with the legislative provisions in place, providing the correct collection procedures and process in place and followed.


We differentiate ourselves in our approach and service delivery. In our approach, we seek to gain an understanding of the type of property owner that is in arrears;

  • Is the property owner experiencing a situation of genuine hardship? Examples of this include a temporary loss of employment or domestic separations. We seek to recover the council rates on terms agreeable to the council that permit the property owner to work through the financial hardship and avoid unnecessary and expensive legal and bankruptcy actions. This seeks to foster goodwill in the local council community.
  • Or is the property owner one that is detracting from the council? This can include property owners who are habitually late in paying council rates taking time unnecessarily from management of the local council. A sterner approach is required that facilitates payment. If payment is not forthcoming prompt legal action and possible bankruptcy action to have the property sold and the council rates paid upon sale of the property.


In the delivery of our service, we seek to keep our clients fully informed and action your accounts quickly for faster collection of the outstanding council rates. In case studies and comparisons undertaken, we can collect your debts significantly faster, ranging from 1 month to 6 months.
