Rates concessions applications invited for 17/18 financial year

Posted on: Friday, 3 March 2017 at 9:33:58 AM

Community not-for-profit groups who pay rates are invited to apply for rates concession for the 2017/18 financial year.

Mayor Camilo Blanco said community groups and not-for-profits were eligible to apply for 50 or 100 per cent concessions on their annual rates payments.

“In the 2016/17 financial year, Council endorsed rates concessions for 28 community groups and not-for-profits totalling $167,000,” he said.

“Providing rates concessions is something Council has done for many years as we recognise the need to support our grassroots organisations and keep them financially sustainable.

“Rates concessions are provided on an annual basis so applicants who received a concession last year will need to reapply for the upcoming financial year.

“Council provides concessions to community groups or organisations that operate as a body corporate or an incorporated association – they cannot be sole traders or make a profit that does not benefit their members.

“Applications for residential properties, not used in the primary service delivery of the community group or association’s activities or services, are not eligible under Council’s rates concession policy.

“Applications close on Friday 31 March and can be sent to council@porthedland.wa.gov.au, or vial mail to PO Box 41, Port Hedland, WA, 6721."
