Pay your property rates by internet banking

Utua ō reiti mā te ipurangi mā te pēke ā-waea rānei

Pay rates for one property by internet banking

Follow the internet banking instructions on the back of your rates notice.

If you don't have a copy of your rates notice:

  • select AUCKLAND COUNCIL - RATES as the payee, or use the bank account number:


  • enter the payment amount
  • enter payer particulars: Your name
  • enter payer code: Property address (as much as will fit)
  • enter payer reference: Rates assessment number (including any leading zeros). If you don't have your rates assessment number handy, you can look it up by typing your address into our Property valuation search box)

If you pay by internet banking on the due date, we will treat the payment as received on time.

Our tip

Banks have different cut-off times for processing transactions. Pay before 5pm on the due date to avoid a penalty.

Pay rates for more than one property

You cannot use internet banking to make a lump sum payment for more than one property.

You need to:

  • set up individual bill payments for each property
  • ensure the relevant payee is used for each property. This will depend on where the property is located.

Our tip

You can make a lump sum payment online for more than one property.
