How rates are billed
A rating year begins on 1 July and ends on 30 June. The rating year is divided into four equal instalments, each invoiced separately.
With your first invoice for the year, you will receive a 'Rates Assessment Notice'. It tells you the total amount you will pay for the entire year to both Kāpiti Coast District and Greater Wellington Regional Councils.
Throughout the year, you will receive four rates invoices, one every three months. They arrive about one month before each due date and must be paid in full on or before each due date to avoid a penalty.
A charge of 10 percent will be added to any amount of the current rate instalment remaining unpaid after the due date.
An additional 10 percent penalty will be added on the 3 July 2020 to any rates remaining unpaid from previous financial years as at 2 July 2020.
|3 July 2020||2019/20 rates arrears penalty added|
|10 September 2020||instalment one penalty added|
|10 December 2020||instalment two penalty added|
|10 March 2021||instalment three penalty added|
|10 June 2021||instalment four penalty added|
