Postponement of rates, rates remissions on Maori land and other classifications
Rates Holiday Postponement
The objective here is to assist ratepayers who undertake economic development that benefits the District as a whole.
Maori Freehold Land
When, in the judgement of Council, it would be unfair or unreasonable to collect rates at this time, land may be placed on this Maori land Register, and retired from rating liability for a period.
Remission of Additional Charges
The objective of the Remission of Additional Charges Policy is to enable Council to act fairly and reasonably in its consideration of rates, which Council have not received by the penalty date, due to circumstances outside the ratepayer’s control.
A discount policy may be adopted for the payment of some or all rates that are identified in the rates assessment before the due date or dates for those rates in the current year. This discount policy must be adopted using the special consultative process and may be included in the annual plan. The policy is based on existing practice. The discount policy assumes that there is only a single discount rate.
Remission of Rates for Natural Calamities Policy
The objective of this policy is to assist ratepayers experiencing financial hardship as a result of a natural event detrimentally affecting the use of the land or the income derived from the land, and which directly affect their ability to pay rates.
Remission of rates for QEII Trust and Land for Natural, Historic or Cultural Conservation Policy
The objective of this policy is to recognise and support the environmental value of such protected areas and to acknowledge the non-commercial use of such protected land. To preserve and promote natural resource sand heritage by encouraging the protection of land for natural, historic or cultural conservation.
