Making payments to Inland Revenue: Electronic payments
You can pay by any of the following electronic methods:
From July 2010 you can make all online payments to us with a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. Westpac New Zealand Ltd will charge a convenience fee of 1.42% per transaction for providing this service, except for payments made from overseas for:
- student loans, and
- non-custodial child support payments.
The transaction will show as an item on your credit or debit card statement showing how much you've paid to Inland Revenue (displayed as 'IRD Payment').
The only information we receive is your IRD number, transaction amount, the amount of the surcharge (if applied) and the period the payment applied to.

If you have an 8-digit IRD number put a zero in front of the number.
To ensure we can process your payments correctly, you need to include the account types you are paying:
- use the DED account type for employer deductions payments that combine PAY, CSE, KSE, KSR, SLE, or SSC
- use the GAP account type for GST103 filers paying GST and provisional tax.
Automatic payments are fixed amount payments made on a fixed frequency, for example fortnightly, for you by your bank. This may suit you if you are paying off an amount of outstanding tax. To make an automatic payment you will need to complete either an:
- Automatic payment authority (IR586) for all tax types
- Automatic payment authority for child support (IR123) for child support payments.
You will find the forms under "Forms and guides".
Direct credits are one-off payments where a customer has authorised their bank to make a payment from their bank account to a payee's bank account.
If you use either a banking or payroll software package that only has two fields for payment detail information, please enter the IRD number in the first available field. In the second field, enter the relevant account type followed by the tax period this payment is for.
See this example below of an income tax payment for the period ending 31 March 2010.
