Process of Valuing and Determining Property Tax

  • On completion of buildings in Port Vila, the Town Planning and Evaluation Unit officers re-measure the buildings to determine the tax payable as Property Tax to the Council.
  • Factors such as Location, Quality of building and Materials used in the building determines the value of the property hence the Property Tax is calculated as 5.5% of the rateable value of the property.
