    The waiting period is 3 full assessment periods, with payment on the 4th month. So depending on the dates of your assessment periods then it will be backdated from either the july or August payment. It can sometimes take a few weeks for them to re-calculate your statements to work out how much they owe.

    I calculated this incorrectly my apologies, it was rather late. LCWRA is paid from September.
