Finance, up and running

Friday 27 March 2020

It is business as usual for the Finance team and all of our staff are working remotely as councils still have to meet their financial obligations during this time.

Invoices are only being processed electronically as staff work remotely. Please send the invoice to with the purchase number on the invoice. If your invoice does not have a purchase order it cannot be processed.

Making payments

Making payments to Council can be done online with a credit card using payment services on the Council website. The following payments can be made:

  • Animals (dog registration)
  • Building Consents
  • Certificates
  • Invoices
  • LIM Requests
  • Rates
  • Resource consents
  • Water charges

Once the payment type is selected an example and where to find the required reference to fill out the web form is shown. See the video below.

Alternatively, you can make a payment from your online banking directly to our bank account:

Westland District Council, 03 0850 0110046 000

Please use the same required reference as for a credit card payment.
