    Due to the difficult times some businesses are facing, we’ve delayed invoicing until October for the 2020/21 financial year.

    Credit card

    You’ll need your ACC number and invoice number.

    Our bank, Westpac, charges a 1.9% convenience fee on all credit card payments. We don't keep any of this fee.

    Direct debit or by instalments

    You can pay your levy in full as a direct debit on your due date, or in monthly instalments of three, six or 10 months (10 months plan will incur a 2.73% admin fee).

    Already paying by direct debit or instalments?

    If you’re on a standard three, six or 10 month payment plan, this should automatically roll over. We'll then send your payment schedule out with your invoice. Your payment schedule will tell you when any payments will come out of your account.

    If you're not on a standard plan, you’ll need to contact us to set this up when you receive your invoice. We'll then send your payment schedule separate from your invoice.

    Pay in person

    Present your invoice at any Westpac branch.
