Fines and interest

Rates arrears are subject to fines and/or interest when an assessment falls into arrears. An assessment is deemed to be in arrears if an instalment of rates is not paid on or before the date on which it falls due . A fine of 2 percent is payable and addition to this, on the expiration of each full month from that date, interest will accrue.

A request to have the recent instalment fine remitted can be made over the phone with our customer relations team on 08 8384 0666 or email us at mail@onkaparinga.sa.gov.au.
