What is a supplementary valuation?
In some circumstances, valuations are conducted between general valuations. These are called supplementary valuations.
Supplementary valuations happen when:
- properties are physically changed, for example, when buildings are constructed, renovated, extended, altered or demolished
- when land is subdivided, amalgamated (combined), or portions are sold off or rezoned
- when incorrect data means another valuation is required, for example, the previous rates and charges were calculated using the wrong land or building areas.
Disregard previous instalment notices
If a supplementary valuation is done on your property, you will get a supplementary valuation and rate notice showing the changed valuations and any changes to your rates and charges amounts (calculated on a pro-rata basis).
If you get a supplementary valuation notice, please disregard any previous rates instalment notices you have received for the financial year – the revised amount you need to pay will be shown on future instalment notices you receive.
What you need to do if you pay by FlexiPay
If you have received a supplementary rates notice and you pay your rates by FlexiPay, you need to update your FlexiPay details so your payments are for the correct, revised amount.
