Internet banking payments
You can pay using your bank’s website or app for internet banking.
When you make direct credit payments, we recommend using the pay tax function provided by most New Zealand banks. (There is no fee for this service.)
You do not need to put the time period in the payee code if you’re making a payment for:
- ARR - arrangements
- COL - cost of living payment
- KSS - KiwiSaver voluntary contributions
- LGL - legal decisions
- NCP - child support liable parents
- RUL - rulings and determinations
- SBC - small business cash loans
- FTR - fees for New Zealand foreign trusts.
Use the following details when making a direct credit payment to us.
|Detail||What to include|

Credit and debit card payments
You can make payments to us with credit and debit cards. We accept Visa and Mastercard.
The bank charges a convenience fee of 1.42% for any credit or debit card payment made to us. From 28 October 2021 overseas customers who pay their student loan and child support obligations by credit or debit card will also be charged this convenience fee. Convenience fees are charged and paid directly to the bank.
You can also pay using a credit or debit card if you do not have a myIR account. You'll need:
- your IRD number
- the account you're making the payment for.
If you're making credit or debit card payments for New Zealand foreign trusts or unclaimed money, you'll need to use myIR.
Direct debit payments
If you're using myIR, you can:
- save direct debit details with us
- make one-off direct debit payments
- authorise multiple direct debit payments.
To get set up, you'll first need to create a direct debit agreement with Inland Revenue. You only need to do this once. This tells us which bank account you'll be using for direct debit payments.
Next, you'll be able to make direct debit payments for your accounts with us. You specify and approve each payment that you set up. You can choose between making a single, one-off payment or multiple, ongoing payments.
If you do not have an amount to pay, you will not get the direct debit payment option. If there is an amount to pay, you'll be able to pay the full or partial amount by direct debit.
You can pay off outstanding tax by making payments for a regular amount for a fixed frequency.
You can set this up using:
- your bank’s online services
- an automatic payment authority form to give to your bank.
