Third rates instalment payment now due

Auckland residential and business ratepayers’ who pay their rates in quarterly instalments are being reminded that their third payment is due by 5pm on Tuesday 26 February.

Rates pay for services and facilities in your community and across Auckland such as transport, libraries, swimming pools, sports fields, parks and road improvements, which will help to make Auckland the world’s most liveable city.

The easiest way to pay your rates is by direct debit. You can set up direct debit authority at any time of the year. Payments can also be made online with credit and debit cards, or by cash, cheque or eftpos at most PostShops or BNZ stores. For more information, visit

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
