12/02/2016: Current economic conditions to be considered when the 2016/2017 Rates Policy review begins
12 February 2016

T

he City of Johannesburg is to consider current economic conditions facing property owners when it embarks on its property Rates Policy review process for 2016/2017.
The policy, which is reviewed annually, defines and categorizes all properties within Johannesburg and allows the City to generate rates revenue by assigning a tariff to the property values obtained in the General Valuation Roll.

City’s spokesperson, Kgamanyane Maphologela says the Rates Policy review process for the 2016/2017 financial year will be done with consideration to the following factors:

  • Recent interest rates hikes
  • the resultant reduction in disposable income
  • the current high cost of living
  • a slowdown in economic growth
  • an increase in property owners depending on social assistance; and
  • businesses requesting more rates relief.


“We are mindful that our consumers and property owners are facing difficult times and as a City we are eager to engage our residents on a policy which will be sustainable, yet beneficial to all parties involved. We also need to ensure that tariffs are equitable and affordable to our residents – so it is in the best interest of all property owners to get involved and help us craft Joburg’s Rates Policy for the 2016/2017 financial year,” says Maphologela.

Residents are urged to participate in the process by offering their suggestions and recommendations to the Property Unit.
