Impact on your rates in 2018/2019
We are looking at introducing new rates to target specific issues that Auckland is facing.
- water quality rate
- natural environment rate
- food waste rate
- Rodney Local Board transport targeted rate
- removal of interim transport levy.
We are also considering changes to the rating of online accommodation providers (e.g. Airbnb properties) so that they are treated the same way as other accommodation providers.
Specifically, we are proposing that online accommodation providers who let out their whole property, for a certain number of days per year, should pay business rates and the Accommodation Provider Targeted Rate (if the property is within a certain zone).
Read more about our proposal in Section 7.3 of the Supporting Information for the 10-year budget.
