Access Bank, Gaborone City Council & Proptech Startup Gosmartvalue Launch Property Rate Payment Platform

Access Bank has partnered with the Gaborone City Council (GCC) and proptech startup Gosmartvalue to launch the PayRates platform.  PayRates, developed by GoSmartValue in collaboration with the Gaborone City Council, is designed to streamline the payment of property rates, offering a user-friendly platform that simplifies the process for all stakeholders.

"By digitising property rates collection, we are not only making payments more convenient but also improving the efficiency and transparency of the entire system," said Sheperd Aisam, the Managing Director of Access Bank Botswana.

The initiative provides numerous benefits for both property owners and local authorities. Property owners can enjoy a hassle-free payment experience with automated reminders and easy online access to payment history.      

For the Gaborone City Council, the platform promises a more efficient revenue collection process, reduced administrative costs, and enhanced financial management.

“The PayRates initiative is a game-charger for our city. It not only simplifies the payment process for our residents but also strengthens our financial management capabilities. This collaboration with Access Bank Botswana underscores our commitment to modernising our city's services and improving the quality of life for our citizens," said GCC Town Clerk Lopang Pule.
