Rating policies

Policies on the Remission and Postponement of Rates on Māori Freehold Land pertaining to the Kaipara and Whangārei districts effective 1 September 2022.

This document outlines the rating policies of the Northland Regional Council (NRC). Rating policies outline the way that councils achieve fair and equitable rates collection to support the overall  wellbeing of the community.

The remission of rates involves reducing the amount owing or waiving collection of rates altogether, where it’s considered appropriate to do so. Postponement allows ratepayers to postpone  payment of all or a portion of their rates, essentially borrowing the equivalent amount from Council each year.
