IR and ACC: No cheques from 1 March
12 February 2020
What: Inland Revenue and ACC will no longer accept payments by cheque or any cheques dated 1 March or later. ACC levy refunds will also no longer be issued by cheque.
When: 1 March 2020
Who: Businesses, individuals, and intermediaries (such as accountants, tax agents and advisors) who pay tax and levies by alternative payment options.
Why: IR and ACC are becoming more digital in the way they work, and so are most of their customers. Cheque use has declined year on year, with most businesses choosing to pay taxes and levies electronically.
What you need to do: Familiarise yourself with the following payment options for IR and ACC. You can pay:
- electronically through internet banking or direct debit
- by debit or credit card online through myIR or MyACC for business
- by cash or eftpos but only at Westpac bank branches.
myIR — Inland Revenue
MyACC for business— ACC
If you think you’re due a refund from ACC, you can provide your bank account details via MyACC for Business. That way, any refunds owed will be processed and paid to your bank account directly.
