Changes To IRD Payments

From 1 October 2014 the IRD has changed how it receives payments.

Cheque payments, returns and other documents are no longer accepted at Westpac branches. Cash and Eftpos payments at Westpac will still be made.

Cheque payments that are posted to the IRD need to be received by the IRD on or before the due date, where as previously they could be posted on the due date.

IRD's preferred payment option is internet banking using your banks tax payment service.
