Rates & Finance

Providing Public Services

We collect rates to provide all of our residents with a wide range of public services – throughout the parish.

Rate Bourne Expenditure


For information about how the rates system works, please visit the Rates Valuation page on the Isle of Man Government Website.

The Isle Of Man Government Treasury collect water rates, burial ground rates and most of the local authority rates on the island. Braddan, Douglas City Council and Onchan District Commissioners are the only three local authorities who collect their own rates.


Issuing our own rate invoices means we can pursue any debtors via the small claims court and therefore keep arrears to a minimum.

Rate bills are sent out at the beginning of April each year. Residents and businesses have until 30 June to either pay their rates in full or set up regular payments.

The following payment methods are available:


By Debit Card

  • A one off payment of the net amount on the 26th June each year.

A discount of 2.25% is given if payment is made in full either on or before 30 June each year.


Rates are still due in full even if a building is empty or has a single occupant. Properties which are in an uninhabitable condition may be eligible for an allowance – please contact us to discuss the matter further.


Registered charities are exempt from paying rates on their premises, provided they complete and return a Charity Exemption Form each year.
