A land tax clearance certificate states whether there is any land tax owing on a property. The liability shown in a certificate is specific to the year in which you applied for the certificate but it might also include land tax owing from previous years.

If you frequently apply for land tax clearance certificates, you should become a registered user. This enables you to easily create, save and manage multiple certificate applications and update requests with secure encrypted payment via Visa, Mastercard or monthly direct debit.


Prepare your application

Write to us on your organisation’s letterhead requesting that you become a registered user, including:

  • contact name,
  • phone number,
  • fax number, if applicable, 
  • email address - certificates will be emailed as attachments.
