Concessions

Rates Concession

The Shire of Carnarvon recognises the value and importance of the services and contributions that not-for-profit recreation, sporting, and community groups provide to the community. 
 
Council provides a rates relief to those eligible not for profit recreation, sporting, and community groups by offering up to 50% waiver on their general land rates.  
 
Eligibility
To apply, an organisation is required to complete all sections of the Rates Concession Application Form and submit any additional documentation requested.   Failure to do so may result in the rejection of the application.
 
The lodging of an application does not affect the liability of a ratepayer to pay the rates assessed in full or under an instalment option whilst awaiting the outcome of their application.
 
All balances outstanding will accrue 7% penalty interest.
 
Once the application has been processed and Council has made its decision, a formal written response will be issued to the applicant.
