Pay direct to our bank account. From your list of bank’s pre-loaded payees list, select Bay of Plenty Regional Council. You can also manually set up Bay of Plenty Regional Council as a payee using the following details:
Account number: 06-0489-0094734-00
Swift code ANZBNZ22
ANZ Bank, Whakatāne Branch.
Particulars - Surname and Initials
Code - Property ID
Reference - Valuation Reference (found on the top right-hand corner of your rates invoice)
Payments made after the bank’s processing times are processed the next business day.
If you choose to pay by automatic payment, you will need to self-monitor your rates account and make sure you clear your balance by 20 October 2023 to avoid incurring a penalty.
For this reason we recommend setting up a direct debit as then your payments are calculated out across the year to 30 June 2024.
