If you have any queries regarding the valuation of your property you can get more information by contacting the Office of the Valuer-General.

The Office of the Valuer-General can be contacted by phone on 1300 653 346 or you can visit their website www.valuergeneral.sa.gov.au

You have the right to raise an objection to the valuation indicated on your rates notice by lodging a statement to the Valuer-General within 60 days of receiving your notice.


a) if you have previously received a notice or notices under the Local Government Act 1999 referring to the valuation and informing you of a 60-day objection period, the objection period is 60 days after service of the first such notice;

b) you may not object to the valuation if the Valuer-General has already considered an objection by you to that valuation.

A written objection to valuation must set out the full and detailed grounds for objection.

Objections can also be submitted via an online form available on the sa.gov.au website

Rates (and or charges) imposed are still due and payable by the due date even if an objection has been lodged.

Differential general rates imposed by Council are based on various Land Use Categories. Should you have any reason to believe that the Land Use Category applied to your account is incorrect, you may lodge a written objection to Council outlining the grounds on which your objection is based (including the Land Use Category that you consider should have been attributed).

Objections must be submitted to Council within 60 days of receiving the first notice of the current year (however the objection period may be extended where reasonable cause is established).

Rates are still due and payable by the due date even if an objection has been lodged.
