Rates are a property tax that you pay to provide the funding needed to improve and finance public services. Your annual rates bill is made up of two parts, the Regional Rate and the District Rate. Rates are collected by the Land and Property Services (Rating), which passes on the District Rate to the Council and the regional rates portion to government departments. The value of your property is assessed by the Land and Property Services (Valuation).
The Regional Rate is set by central government (Department of Finance and Personnel) and is the same for each council area in Northern Ireland. The Regional Rate helps fund services such as agriculture and rural development, education, employment and learning, health, roads, housing, water and sewerage and personal social services.
The District Rate is set by the council and is based upon the estimated cost of providing local services, including refuse collection, recycling, street cleansing, tourism, arts and civic events, leisure facilities, community centres, playing fields and parks, environmental health, dog control, building control, economic development, public conveniences, cemeteries and much more. It also covers new developments and improvements in facilities.
