Considering rating: what should local governments look for?



This briefing looks at how rates are applied and considers the different approaches available to councils, and explores the basis of property valuation used for rating purposes, the use of differential rates and the application of a minimum rate or fixed charge. The principals of equity (capacity to pay and benefits received) are also considered.
