FAQ's

How are rates calculated?

Through Landgate, the Valuer General assesses the Gross Rental Value (GRV) of each individual property every three years. When this data is received by the City, a rate in the dollar is applied to calculate the rates amount.

Will I pay more than last year?

Recent price increases in fuel, materials and equipment have had a significant impact to the City on the cost of delivering services.  Key local government expenses have been forecast by to increase by 5.7% and inflation in Western Australia is now at 7.6%. A Rate increase of 3.75% is proposed for 2022/23 to assist in managing these cost pressures.

How can I comment?

Ratepayers are invited to make submissions in writing to the Chief Executive Officer, City of Stirling, 25 Cedric Street, Stirling WA 6021 or via email to rates@stirling.wa.gov.au and must be received no later than 4.00pm, Friday 1 July 2022 to be considered.
