Rate capping outcomes reports
Every two years, we are required to report on the outcomes of rate capping in Victoria. We identify any impacts or trends that might be emerging across the local government sector.
The outcomes report aims to provide information about councils’ service, infrastructure and financial outcomes following the introduction of rate capping.

Our latest outcomes report looks at what happened to the local government sector's finances in the first four years of rate capping (2016–17 to 2019–20), including the first few months of the coronavirus pandemic. It also looks at what happened to the rates and charges paid by Victorian ratepayers, and the quality of the services provided by councils to the community.
