Tariff increases

Water

A network availability charge for all properties irrespective of usage will be implemented. The network availability charge is equal to the first 9 kℓ charge for residential properties, which will cover the bulk cost and part of the operating costs.

The consumptive charges will increase by 9% on average.

Registered indigents and residents with a property value of R150 000 or less are exempted from the network availability charge.

12 kℓ of water per 30-day period will again be granted free of charge to registered indigent households. It should further be noted that free water is also supplied to informal areas by water tankers and standpipes.

The 9% water tariff increase is summarised as follows:

The tariff increase for domestic, commercial and industrial customers is 7,47% in line with the National Energy Regulator of South Africa's guideline for municipalities.

The proposed sliding scale tariffs for the 2022/23 financial year that apply to households are as follows:

The City of Tshwane reserves the right to determine the type of service, the minimum number of containers and the frequency of services per area.

Property rates

The first R15 000 of the market value of all residential properties is legislatively impermissible for the charging of property rates, and a further valuation reduction of R135 000 is granted by the City for charging property rates. All residential properties are thus not charged any property rates on the first R150 000 of the value and registered indigents pay no property rates. Furthermore, the social package is extended to all properties valued at R150 000 and below.

The residential tariff is the baseline tariff, which determines the ratios of some of the other tariffs. The rate ratio of residential to agricultural and public benefit organisations is legislatively determined to be 1:0,25.

Based on a 6% increase from 1 July 2022, calculations can be done as follows:
