You can apply here to pay your Hawke's Bay Regional Council rates by Direct Debit. This is the easiest way to pay, as we will adjust your payment amounts each year for you.
We can arrange a direct debit option to spread your rates payments, with a monthly plan.
If you are setting up a new direct debit to pay your rates, you can choose from three options:
Please note: If you sign up to direct debit you will not be charged a penalty fee on the 21 September, as long as your direct debit payments are paid.
If you are currently experiencing financial hardship, and direct debit is not an option, our Rates team can help set up an alternative payment arrangement. Please tall our team +64 6 835 9200 for a confidential discussion.
Before you sign up to direct debit you can check what your rates monthly direct payments would be.
Just enter your address and the month you would like to start your repayments, and the calculator will work out your potential monthly payments. Check out the 'things to know' on this page before using this calculator.
You can use the online form below for up to 3 properties. If you have more than 3 properties, simply complete the form again.
If you prefer you can complete the direct debit form by hand rather than online. You'll need to complete a separate form for each property.
Please complete this form and submit. We will then be in touch to confirm your direct debit.
An option for a single direct debit payment on the due date is also available. These will occur on 20 September each year, which is the new due date for paying your rates.
This amount has been calculated to clear rates by 20 September 2023. If you start payments partway through the year, your deductions will initially be higher in order to clear rates by the due date. From 20 October 2023 payments will be recalculated across a full 12 month period and the new payment amount will be notified on your invoice.
