The Council wants to ensure a fair rating system for all ratepayers.

CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded

The proposed new rating structure means all businesses across the Blue Mountails will pay the same rate-in-the-dollar and the proportion of overall rates contributed by businesses is transparent.

Under the current structure, businesses would contribute 6.79% of total rates revenue in 2011-2012, however businesses received the benefit of almost 9% of the Council's expenditure in 2010-2011. It is proposed to increase the contribution of rate revenue to approximately 9.5% which is better aligned with their use of Council provided services and facilities. 

Depending on location, the majority of businesses will pay more rates, many others however will receive a reduction in rates.
