The 2022 – 2023 Bay of Plenty Regional Council annual rates invoices have started being sent out to ratepayers across the region.

We want to be more transparent and accountable for the work we do for you, so for the first time since the Regional Council was formed in 1989, we are collecting our own rates. Until now, we’ve contracted this out to the region’s city and district councils to do this on our behalf.

There are plenty of ways to pay your rates invoice, including by direct debit, in person at one of our offices, at your local NZ Post Office shop or online.

Direct debit means you can pay your rates invoice in regular instalments (weekly, fortnightly, monthly, or annually), which is handy for budgeting and means you don’t have to worry about remembering to make a payment.

It also means that you won’t get charged a penalty on any amount that is still owing after the due date of 20 October for the current rates year.

For any changes to the payment amount, we’ll always let you know before taking the funds from your account and you can cancel the direct debit at any time by contacting us.

For more information about the changes and how to pay your rates go to boprc.govt.nz/rates or call our rates team on 0800 BOP RATES (0800 267 728)

Find out the cost of your 2022-2023 regional council rates on our website or at one of our offices using the Rating Information database (RID).
