BPAY View® 

View, download and pay your next Rate Notice via Internet banking.

It's the faster, hassle-free and environmentally friendly and secure way to view and pay your bills. BPAY View offers easy access to pay and track your notices, whilst being kind to the environment by cutting down on paper and reducing our carbon footprint.

Register for BPAY View®

To use BPAY View, you will need to be registered for internet banking with your financial institution.

Once logged in locate the BPAY View section and follow the steps to add or register a new BPAY View biller. To receive your rates notice through BPAY View enter the following details:

  • Rate Notice
  • Biller Code:5074
  • Reference Number: use the Bpay Reference Number from your previous Rate Notice
  • Valuation Number: use the Valuation Number from your previous Rates Notice

Once details have been entered, you will be notified via email of successful registration.

Receiving your Rate Notice

Once registered with BPAY View, your next Rate Notice will be sent electronically only, and your financial institution will notify you when this occurs (via email, SMS or internal internet banking messages - depending on notifications available/activated with your financial institution). Your notice will be available when you next log on to your internet banking.

The electronic copy of your notice will look exactly the same as the printed version, and you can also choose to print and save your own copy if desired.

You will receive a payment reminder (depending on your financial institution) up to two (2) days prior to the due date. When making a BPAY payment from the BPAY View section of your internet banking site, the amount to pay and reference numbers will be pre-populated to make it easier for you.

Otherwise, you can still use the alternate payment methods outlined on your notice.

If you have any additional questions, visit the BPAY website or contact your financial institution.

No, once you have registered to receive your Rates Notice via BPAY View, you will no longer receive the notices in the mail.


No, once you have registered to receive your Rates Notice via EZYbill, you will no longer receive these types of notices in the mail.
