Changes to rates payment options
From 15 March 2021 you will no longer be able to pay your rates by cheque.
Banks are phasing out cheques and as a result, we are too.
If you pay by cheque there are still plenty of options for you, including paying by direct debit – which allows you to spread out your payments to suit you.
Just fill out a Direct Debit Authority form, decide how often you want to pay – weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly – and we will take care of the rest.
You can also pay by internet banking, by credit card online, or in person at any of our libraries and service centres or the Council offices in Rolleston.
