New due date for Regional Council Rates next year 2020

A heads up that there will be a change to the due date for your rates from next year. Regional Council invoices are currently sent out in September each year, with final date for payment 31 January.

From July 2020, rates will be invoiced in early August and due by 20 September 2020. Pay your rates as usual this year, or take advantage of our new monthly direct debit option to make sure you’ve paid in full by the new due date. The handy calculator on this page will help you work out potential monthly repayments. 

Things to know:

  • Monthly payment amounts in the calculator do not reflect any credit or debit balances carried forward from previous rating year(s). These will alter the monthly repayment amount.
  • Monthly deductions will be made on the 20th of each month, or the following working day if the 20th falls on a weekend or public holiday.
  • Clean Heat or Sustainable Homes - this direct debit calculator does not include or replace any direct debits for financial assistance.
  • 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 each year.

  • This calculator should not be used to set up your own payment plan by internet banking or automatic payment through your bank, as any private payment arrangements must clear the balance by 20 September each year, to avoid a penalty on the outstanding balance.
    With a Direct Debit lodged through  the regional council, you will receive non-penalty status, provided all payments are honoured on the 20th of each month
