IPOH: The Ipoh City Council is giving a three-month moratorium on assessment tax, licence renewal and rental in view of the current lockdown.

Ipoh mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin said the moratorium will be for ratepayers who are paying their first term of their assessment tax, tenants of council flats and those renewing their licenses for business premises, advertisements and dogs.

"We are aware of the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The moratorium is meant to help the people, including small businesses that have been impacted and it will be enforced starting this month until August 31," he said in a statement Tuesday (June 15).

"It is not meant as a payment exemption but more on understanding the need of the people to stay at home and to temporarily limit any physical transaction at our counters.

"No enforcement or late fine will be imposed during the period," he added.

Rumaizi said online payments could still be conducted through the city council's website.

"Tenants and ratepayers can still make payments to avoid any arrears," he said.
