Receive rates by email

If you would like to receive all future rate invoices and correspondence from Council by email instead of by post, you can register for it now.  We will process your request and confirm back to you by email once it has been set up.

Please note:

  • By completing an online application, you agree to accept rates invoices and correspondence by email to the email address you provide instead of by regular post
  • If you change your email address, please let us know immediately.  Upper Hutt City Council cannot accept responsibility for rates invoices and correspondence that cannot be delivered due to an invalid email address.  Rates invoices and correspondence not able to be delivered by email, will be delivered to your last known postal address.
  • Always be sure to notify Council of any change in postal address.  Even if you are receiving your rates information by email, other Council departments may still send you information by post so it is important to always notify Council of any change in postal address.
