This service is provided by our bank, Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) in agreement with Christchurch City Council. You do not have to be a BNZ customer to use this service.

Pay your rates by Visa or Mastercard

BNZ will charge you a service fee per transaction (currently 2%, with a minimum of $1.00).  The Council does not receive any part of this fee.

You will need to supply a Property ID number so that we can ensure you are paying rates for your property. The Property ID is at the top right of your rates demand and also known as the Reference No. (it's an eight-digit number beginning 73xxxxxx).  You can also find your Property ID by looking up your address in the Rates and valuation search tool where it is known as the Rate account number.

If you own more than one property, a separate payment is required for each.
