A property clearance certificate (previously known as 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 the certificate might also include land tax owing from previous years.
If you frequently apply for property clearance certificates, you should become a registered user of our clearance certificates portal. 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.
