However, data collected by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries indicates that 77% of applications for imposing differential rates in 2022 were incomplete.

Incomplete applications resulted in an average processing time delay of 10 days, potentially resulting in delays to budget adoption and issuance of ratepayer notices.

To assist local governments with the preparation and submission of applications, the department has prepared a helpful infographic.

The flow-chart contained in the graphic provides a timeline for the preparation of applications and identifies areas where improvements could be  made.
