Set up an automatic payment for property rates

Whakaritea he utunga aunoa mō ō reiti

An automatic payment allows you to set up the date and amount your bank can deduct from your account to pay your property rates.

  • Contact your bank to set it up.
  • Choose the amount and frequency of payments.
  • Make sure the payment amounts cover the rates you owe by the due date, to avoid a penalty.
  • Property rates change every year - you need to modify your payments to cover the changes.

Our tip

Set up a direct debit payment and avoid the need to monitor your property rates payments.
