Rent calculator for community housing providers
Our rent calculator helps you calculate rent for your tenants.
Calculations are based on the Community housing rent policy—September 2013 (PDF, 306KB).
The rent calculator doesn't save tenant or household details—it only calculates rent.
Before using the calculator, collect the details of assessable income for all household members.

Assessable and non-assessable income
Assessable income types include pensions, allowances and benefits, wages and work allowances, and other income sources.
Payments for a specific purpose are usually non-assessable. Exclude these from your rent assessments.
