Absentee Landowners Levy

The Absentee Landowners Levy Act 1976 (NI) was amended, not repealed, in late 2017. Changes to the Act include an amendment to the definition of “levy day” which now means 'September 15, in every year other than 2017 or a later year.'

Whilst absentee levies will no longer be issued, any outstanding amounts from previous years are still required to be paid to the Norfolk Island Regional Council.

Methods of payment include:

  • in person to the Customer Care Team located in the Telecom Building, 9 New Cascade Rd
  • by mail to PO Box 95, Norfolk Island 2899.  Cheques should be made payable to the Norfolk Island Regional Council and marked ‘Not Negotiable’
  • by ringing free phone 0100 between 9:00am and 4:00pm, Monday to Friday with your credit card and property details (a surcharge will apply)
  • by BPAY, refer to the details on your rates notice
