1.5% discount - Early Payment of Rates Incentive Scheme:

Your Council sees tremendous value in stimulating our local economy in order to protect our highly valued local businesses in these unusual and difficult times. As a result, Council has prioritised spending within the 2021/22 budget to provide an economic stimulus fund in the form of York Dollars to offer an incentive for early rates payment and a stimulus for the local economy.

Pay your rates and charges in full by 15 September 2021 and receive a 1.5% discount off your rates (excluding other charges) and $50 in York Dollar vouchers to spend locally.

For those paying by instalments, if you pay your first instalment by 15 September 2021, you can claim $20 in York Dollar vouchers.

York Dollars - Think Shop Support Local!

The Shire of York is offering York Dollars as part of the 2021/22 Rates Incentive scheme. Please go out and spend your York Dollars with a local business! You will be doing a great deed to stimulate York's economy. By spending money at a locally-owned business, the money stays in the community and will get spent again - maybe once - maybe twice. This is called the 'multiplier effect' and keeps York's businesses buoyant and locals employed.

How to collect your York Dollars:

York Dollar vouchers must be collected in person. Due to their cash nature, they cannot be mailed.

All vouchers are to be collected prior to 30 September 2021, or they will be forfeited. 

To claim your York Dollars, please bring your rate notice and ID to the Shire Administration Office, located at 1 Joaquina St, between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday.

If you are unable to collect your voucher in person during office hours, then please contact our friendly customer service officers on 9641 0500 or email records@york.wa.gov.au.au, to discuss alternative arrangements.
