Commercial Rates Strategy

Supporting growth in the business sector

We see business investment as a key goal to Playford's future prosperity and growth. Our Council aims to support this growth through the reduction of rates for the business sector by up to 40 percent over 13 years, following the adoption of its new Commercial Rate Strategy in June 2014.

This strategy is a sustainable and equitable solution funded by new revenue generated from growth in the region, and will occur over a number of years as existing businesses expand and new businesses come to the City of Playford!

The commercial rate reductions will occur in the year following a year in which a surplus occurs. The implementation of the strategy will have no impact on existing services as well as residential rate payers.
