You can pay your rates by direct debit, credit card, automatic payment, internet banking, Eftpos, cash or cheque.
If you pay by direct debit, the correct amount you need to pay at each instalment is calculated for you.
Complete the form in the Rates Easy Pay Brochure (195KB pdf) and send it to us at 16 Cobham Court, Porirua 5240.
Please note: write your Surname in the Payer Particulars section, your Address in the Payer Code section, and your Rate Account number in the Payer Reference section.
Use your online bank account to set up PCC RATES as a bill payment option.
Make sure you include the account number from your rates notice with the payment details.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us you’re going to be paying by automatic payment. Then we’ll know not to charge a late payment penalty if your funds aren’t transferred on the due date because it’s a weekend or public holiday.
Remember to update your automatic payment each year to adjust for any change to the amount of rates you’ll pay.
Pay at our Customer Services Centre at 14 Hartham Place, Porirua, or at any NZ Post Shop.
We can send your rates assessment and rates invoices by email (as pdf attachments). We won’t contact you at the email address you provide, except to send these documents.
Email your request to email@example.com with these details:
If you receive your rates invoices by email, you’ll be entered into a quarterly draw to have $350 credited to your rates account.
If you receive your rates invoice by email AND pay your rates by direct debit, you’ll have the chance for another $150 to be credited to your rates account, as well as being entered into the $350 quarterly draw.
