This calculator helps you to calculate your estimated district-wide rates*.

Annual Plan 2019/20 and Revenue & Financing Policy Consultations

This year, we proposed a differential on the general rate within Wellington City only. We consulted on this through our Annual Plan 2019/20 and Revenue & Financing Policy consultations, which are now closed. Council will make their decision before the end of June. To learn more, see Have Your Say.

Use the calculator to see how the proposed rating change might impact your rates for 2019/20.

When you’re selecting the rate year from the dropdown box, please note:

  • If you select ‘2019/20 : Proposed’, the calculator applies a general rate differential within Wellington City to your estimated rates calculation. This is the proposed option being consulted on.
  • If you select ‘2019/20 : Alternate’, the calculator maintains the current policy settings (i.e. no differential to the general rate in Wellington City is applied to your estimated rates calculation).

When you’re selecting the property type from the dropdown box, please note also:

  • Regional  CBD' only applies to businesses in the Wellington CBD. 'Business' applies to businesses in Wellington City but outside the CBD.
  • For residential properties in the Kāpiti Coast district, if you live in the Ōtaki rating area select 'Residential – Ōtaki rating area'. If you live elsewhere in the Kāpiti Coast district select 'Residential – excl Ōtaki'.
  • NOTE: If you have trouble loading property type options in the dropdown boxes, try opening this website in a different internet browser.

*Your estimate does not include: Pest management rates, South Wairarapa District river rates, Wairarapa river and drainage schemes, and any Warm Greater Wellington targeted rates. This is because they are targeted rates that only impact certain ratepayers covered by these programmes.

Please note: 

This calculator does not include rates set by your local city or district council. Greater Wellington rates are set and assessed by Greater Wellington but are invoiced and collected by the relevant territorial authority in the Wellington region. Such combined collection arrangements are cost effective and more convenient for ratepayers.
