Overdue property rates payments and penalties
Utu reiti kua hipa kē me ōna whiu tāpirihanga
When are rates instalments due?
Rates instalment payments are due by 5pm on the due dates for rates payments.
When we apply penalties
If you do not pay on time, we will add a rates penalty of 10 per cent of the amount left to pay.
We apply the following penalties:
- If unpaid by the due date, 10 per cent of the unpaid part of an instalment.
- A further 10 per cent at the end of each rating year to unpaid rates and penalties.
- A further 10 per cent to any amounts still unpaid six months after the end of the rating year.
We credit payments towards the oldest overdue amount.
In some cases, you may be eligible for a refund on a rates penalty.
