In accordance with Sections 6.33 & 6.36 of the Local Government
Act 1995 and the Council’s intention to continue levying differential
rates for the 2023/2024 Financial Year.
The overall objective of the Rates and Charges in the 2023/2024 Budget is to provide for the shortfall in income required to enable the City of Kalamunda to provide the necessary works and services in the 2023/2024 Financial Year after taking into account
all non-rate sources of income. Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on the 23rd May 2022 set the parameters to initiate the Budget 2023/2024 process.
A minimum rate is applied to all differential rating categories within the City of Kalamunda. The setting of the minimum rate is in recognition that every property within the City receives some minimum level of benefit from services provided. By adopting
a minimum rate, Council takes this benefit into consideration.
Landgate has more information on the different land valuation methods on their website.
Details of the proposed Minimum Rates and Rate in the Dollar for each rating category are as follows:
The valuations provided to the City for GRV properties are reviewed on a Tri-annual basis by Landgate. GRV values are reflective of the estimated rental yield per year of the property. Further information about the exact method of calculation and any
objections to valuations will need to be directed to the Valuer Generals Office at Landgate.

The valuations provided to the City for UV properties are reviewed on an annual basis by Landgate.
