UPDATE (Tuesday, Feb 2 1pm): Please note that the form is now closed.

It is the scourge of public holidays in New Zealand - and a recent straw poll by the Herald showed almost half of restaurants, bars and cafes are still adding a 'holiday surcharge' of 15 to 20 percent to their bills.

Before Waitangi Day, we will compile a database of of establishments that will not be charging customers more to use their services, and print them in a comprehensive guide next Wednesday.

The Herald would like businesses from all over New Zealand to inform our readers of their plans by filling in the simple online form below.

We want to promote establishments that are willing to provide goods and services at normal prices - so that our readers know where they can go without being hit in the pocket.
