Ratepayers now have the option of getting their rates invoices sent to an email address.
From today, the Ashburton District Council will offer this alternative to receiving invoices in the post.
People wanting to receive their rates invoices via email will need to follow these steps:
- Visit eservices.adc.govt.nz and click on 'Subscribe rates email' under the 'Rating Information' heading.
- Register with your name, property number, email address and phone number.
- The Council will verify your details within 10 working days.
- You will receive a confirmation email when the process is complete.
Only one email address can be registered for a property. It will be ratepayers' responsibility to notify the Council if their email address changes.
People who do not register for this service will continue receiving invoices in the post.
For those who pay rates every two months, the next instalment is due 20 August 2015. To receive this invoice via email, register before 10 July 2015.
