How to make payments to IRD

Visual

Inland Revenue's logo appears on screen. It slides to the left and a computer screen pops up from the bottom which receives a tick.

Audio

Making a payment to Inland Revenue? Why not do it online? It's easy!

Visual

The screen changes to show a password being entered on an internet banking account. The words "Tax payment service" appear on the screen. A bank statement replaces this text, indicating that the payment will show up on your bank statement straight away.

Audio

Take internet banking! It's simple to go to your bank's website, log-in and use their tax payment service. Your payment will show up on your bank statement straight away.

Visual

The bank statement fades away, with credit and debit cards appearing on the screen with a link to ird.govt.nz/pay. A clock appears indicating the process will only take five minutes.

Audio

Or, you can pay by credit or debit card on our website. Five minutes and you're done.

Visual

The computer screen fades away and as the camera zooms out, it reveals a person overseas holding a briefcase. A dollar sign appears at the top right corner which has a line swiftly crossing it out. This illustrates that it is fee-free to use any of the international money transfer services listed on our website.

Audio

Overseas? Not a problem! It's fee-free to use any of the international money transfer services listed on our website.

Visual

An icon of a calendar reading "due date" replaces the dollar sign at the top right corner.

Audio

Remember to pay by the due date. Otherwise penalties and interest will start piling up.

Visual

On the left hand side, exclamation marks appear and begin to pile up on one another. As the pile appears to tip over onto the person, the camera zooms in into the person's briefcase and it shows the national number (0800 775 247) and the international number (+64 4 978 0779). A light bulb appears over these numbers.

Audio

If you're having trouble paying, don't bury your head in the sand. Give us a call and we'll work with you to find a solution.

Visual

Closing sequence. The Inland Revenue logo appears again, with the website - ird.govt.nz. The New Zealand Government logo then appears from the bottom of the screen.
