Rates and water bills

Rates contributions help us to provide a vast range of services, activities and facilities that make the Gold Coast the best place to live and visit.

Discounts and concessions

Assistance with accessing the information below can be provided through the National Relay Service or the National Translating and Interpreting Service.


Pensioner concessions

Pensioners may be entitled to receive City of Gold Coast's rate remission and/or the State Government's pensioner rate subsidy on the rates payable for their home. Pensioners may also be eligible for the State Government's pensioner water subsidy. For more information visit our Pensioner concessions page.

Rate payment deferment option

The City offers eligible pensioners, and holders of a Queensland Government Seniors Card who pay above the Minimum General Rate, the option to defer payment of the amount that is above the minimum, until the property is sold or for their lifetime.

The deferment option allows long-term residents on fixed incomes to continue living in their home in the face of spiralling land values and any resultant above-average increases in the General Rate.

Discount on rates

The City offers a discount for paying your rates on time. The discount amount on your rate notice represents a 10 per cent discount on your General Rate. There is no discount applicable on any other rate or charge appearing on your rate notice.
