Pay a council invoice

Use our step by step guide to all the options for paying an invoice that has been issued by council for building or resource consents, cemetery fees, leases and any other sundry invoices.

Before you start

Please have your invoice handy. You will need your customer number, invoice number, the amount on the bottom of your invoice, and an email address for your receipt.

The customer number should be entered in full, leaving out the hyphen or dash.
As per the example, enter 12345678 not 1234567-8.

Payment options

Pay your debtors invoice using a credit or debit card through our secure payment gateway.

Before making a payment

  • We do not collect or save credit card information.
  • Allow enough time for your payment to get to us by the due date.
  • You will be sent a payment confirmation if you provide an email address.
  • If you use a credit card issued outside New Zealand, your card issuer may charge currency conversion and other fees.
  • Contact your bank for fee information.
  • There is no need to register or create an account.

To make a payment online, please follow these steps:
