From 1st March 2020 the IRD will no longer accept cheques. Although payment by cheque is becoming less and less frequent, there are still customers who make payments by cheque who will need to switch to another payment method by that date.

The IRD has several alternative payment options to choose from:

  • Direct debit and card payments can be made in myIR.
  • Online banking.
  • Credit card or debit card via secure payment on the IRD’s website.
  • EFTPOS or cash payments can be made at any Westpac bank or ATM.
  • Money transfer if you are living overseas.

Please contact us if you need help in changing from cheques to a different payment method.
