LLM makes it easier to settle municipal debts

Is your municipal account in arrears? Let the municipality meet you half way.

To ease the financial burden customers in arrears with their municipal accounts face, the Lesedi Local Municipality (LLM) has introduced a debt incentive programme to encourage them to pay for their debts.

The LLM offers the programme in exchange for prompt and timely payments of accounts from the municipality.
Residential, commercial and agriculture customers and NPOs and churches can apply for the incentive.

The programme outline:

• Ageing of debt: 60 days to 365 days

Cash payment (debt incentive %): 50%

Payment through instalments (debt incentive %): one to three months: 30%, three to six months: 25%, six to 12 months: 20%.

• Ageing of debt: 365 days and older

Cash payment (debt incentive %): 50%
Payment through instalments (debt incentive %): one to three months: 40%, three to six months: 35%, six to 12 months: 30%.

• Ageing of debt: Interests (all)

Cash payment (debt incentive %): 100%

Payment through instalments (debt incentive %): one to three months: 100%, three to six months: 100%, six to 12 months: 100%.

The scheme does not apply to any State departments or State-owned entities.

The form for the debt incentive programme is available on the LLM’s website.
