Opportunity for ratepayers to receive rates notice electronically

This year, you can choose to receive your rates notice a little differently.

Council is working with BPAY View to give you the option to receive your rates notice electronically. By using BPAY View, you can receive, pay and store your rates notices in your online banking account, making it easier for you.

Mayor Steve Kons said, “This may be a good option for anyone who finds their mail piling up at the end of the kitchen bench, or if you often lose your bills. BPAY View offers a more efficient way to receive and manage your bills that doesn’t rely on paper.”

To launch that you can now register to pay your rates using this method, BPAY are giving you the opportunity to win $500. Register using your online banking before 30 August 2013 to be in the draw to win. It only takes three simple steps.

After you have completed the registration you will be notified by email or SMS if your registration has been approved. Once the registration has been approved, your next Burnie City Council rates notice will be automatically sent to your online banking account. You will be notified when your next bill arrives by email, SMS or internet bank notification, depending on your preference and financial institution.

“Receiving a rates notice electronically will not be for everyone, and is certainly a voluntary decision to receive the notice this way. We hope that some members in our community will find this more convenient,” Mayor Kons said.
