This page provides a search tool to find out how much your rates are, and links to information about methods to pay rates, when rate installments are due, property valuations, the rates rebate scheme, water rates, LIMs and an explanation of what your rates pay for. Rates are essential income to help meet the cost of all the services and facilities provided by the Hauraki District Council.


Property rates and payment options

Rates are a charge against a property (rating unit), based on the rateable capital value of the property and what the property is used for.  Rates are invoiced in four instalments per year during August, November, February and May. We provide a number of different payment options including online credit card payments, direct debit and automatic payments as well as other standard methods.

Valuations 

Rating valuations are set under the Rating Valuations Act 1998. Rating valuations are assigned to every property in New Zealand and updated every three years. Councils use Rating Values as one component in apportioning rates.

The Rates for 2022/23 have not yet been set. The information available from the search below is an indication only and will be confirmed once the rates have been set for the year.

Rates rebate scheme 

Am I eligible for a rates rebate? The Rates Rebate Scheme was established to provide a subsidy to low-income homeowners.

Separately Used or Inhabited Parts (SUIPs)

From 1 July 2022, every separately used or inhabited part of a property will be charged a ‘uniform annual general charge’ or UAGC and a Ward Annual Charge. Previously, one UAGC and one Ward Annual Charge was rated per property. Now, a UAGC and a Ward Annual Charge will be charged per separately used part of a property.
