Pay it



Cash payments

If you would like to pay by cash, cheque or Eftpos you are welcome to come to our offices in Te Awamutu at 101 Bank Street, or to our service centre in ​Cambridge at 23 Wilson Street. 

Credit card payments

You can pay your rates, water ratesdebtor accounts, and dog registrations using a credit card online. We accept Visa and Mastercard. 

We recommend reading the Online payments - Terms and Conditions before using the online payment facilities.

Please note that using a credit card will incur a convenience fee that is charged by the credit card and merchant service providers, we do not retain* any part of this fee.

The credit card surcharges for each of these cards are:

    • Visa: $1.46 per transaction,

    • MasterCard: 2%

You should check with the Bank that issued your credit card for details about other fees or charges that may also apply, as this credit card transaction is carried out in terms of the arrangement between you and your card issuer.

If the payment is made using a credit card issued outside New Zealand, any currency conversion will be done according to the terms and conditions of the card – there may be currency conversion fees charged by your card issuer.

Transactions are processed within two working days of the payment.

Please contact us regarding refunds for overpayments or incorrect payments.

* We initially receive the fee as part of the total payment amount, but then pay the entire fee out again to the merchant services provider.
