There's no fewer than eight different ways to pay your quarterly rates notice at the Borough of Queenscliffe. We highly recommend signing up to our eNotices service, which sends your bills directly to you via email and allows you to make payments over the internet, but there are also a number of alternate methods to suit every resident and ratepayer.

Online

Step 1.Via eNotices

Simply visit queenscliffe.enotices.com.au to register for our eNotices system, using the unique eNotices Reference Number found on the front of your rates notice. eNotices delivers rates notices via email, and lets you specify up to six separate email addresses that can receive the rates notice each quarter.

Step 2.Via the internet using BPAY

Nearly every bank, credit union or building society in Australia allows you to pay bills via BPAY. Using your online banking website or app, find where to make a payment via BPAY and then enter the biller code 93906 and your customer account number shown on the front of your rates notice.

Step 3.Via the internet using Post Billpay

Australia Post's Post Billpay system allows you to pay bills quickly and securely at any time. Visit their website to pay online, or use your mobile/table to scan and pay bills with the Australia Post app.
