Far North District Council apologises for the inclusion of incorrect rating information on our online Rating Information Database.

We sincerely apologise to all our customers for the anxiety this has caused in already difficult times.  

The problem occurred when new property values recently released by Quotable Value (QV) were incorrectly applied by the ratings calculator. This resulted in disproportionate and incorrect rate increases being calculated for many properties.

We are now fixing this mistake and the correct figures will be available on the Rating Information Database by the end of today, Thursday 25 May 2023.
