​Paying your rates​

​Rates are payable monthly. As a property owner, you should make sure that the City has your current postal address so that you receive your account on time. Even if you do not receive a statement, you are still liable to pay your rates.​

Metro Centre

We have arranged a variety of quick and easy options for you to pay your rates and municipal services accounts.

Pay points 
Remember to take your statement with you when paying your account. It can take up to five working days for your payments to reflect on your statement when you pay via a third party. Please retain your payment slip or receipt as proof of payment.

Post Offices, EasyPay outlets (including Pick ’n Pay, Shoprite Checkers, Spar, Best Electric, Lifestyle Living, Score, Lewis); or
