Change in Tarrif

30th Mar, 20

We wish to inform our valued clients that NCDC Board approved amendments to the Land Tax tariff for 2020 to support and sustain the operations of St. Johns Ambulance in providing emergency services to city residents. All revenue collected as a result of the changes shall be passed onto St. Johns Ambulance.

The intended change in tariff will be as follows;


          2019 (old)

         2020 (new)

Commercial*, Light Industrial*, Industrial*

4.6% of the Unimproved Capital Value

5% of the Unimproved Capital Value


2.84% of the Unimproved Capital Value

 No change


A 5% discount shall be allowed to clients who pay within a month of the invoice. A 10% discount is allowed to individual residential property owners with one dwelling unit and who paid their land tax prior to the commencement of the incentive period on 5th November 2019.

Garbage Rate will be also increased by 20% on all categories to narrow down the subsidy to sustain these services.

We thank you for your continued support in the management of the City of Port Moresby.
