Launch of UnionPay acceptance with our merchant services - 1 August 2023

From 1 August 2023, Kiwibank customers with a merchant facility will be able to accept in person UnionPay card payments (where the terminal hardware supports such payments). As a result, we’ve made changes to our Merchant Agreement and merchant service fees.

The service fee for acceptance of UnionPay card payments is 1.50% of the total monthly volume of sales and refund transactions. Effective 1 August 2023, once you process a payment or transaction using a UnionPay card, you're taken to have accepted the updated terms and conditions applying to UnionPay card payments, as detailed in the updated Merchant Agreement.

Kiwi Asset Finance Limited is amalgamating with Kiwibank - 30 June 2023

Kiwi Asset Finance Limited (KAFL) and Kiwibank Limited (Kiwibank) are amalgamating on 30 June 2023 to become one company. The continuing company will be Kiwibank.

After the amalgamation Kiwibank will replace KAFL as the creditor under KAFL’s lending products, and any reference to "Kiwi Asset Finance Limited" or “Kiwi Asset Finance” in an agreement should be read as a reference to "Kiwibank Limited".

Information for KAFL customers:
  • The amalgamation will not expand Kiwibank’s security position in relation to Kiwibank and KAFL lending.
  • Any existing security held by Kiwibank will continue to secure only non-asset finance obligations, and any existing security held by KAFL will continue to secure only asset finance obligations.
  • Any security entered after the amalgamation will secure all past and future obligations to Kiwibank and KAFL, unless we agree otherwise.

When we talk about ‘security’, this includes guarantees.

Information for guarantors:
  • If you have guaranteed the obligations of a KAFL customer, the amalgamation means that any existing guarantee granted to KAFL will continue to secure only asset finance obligations.
  • Similarly, any existing guarantee granted to Kiwibank will continue to secure only non-asset finance obligations.
  • Any guarantee you give us after the amalgamation will secure all past and future obligations to Kiwibank and KAFL, unless we agree otherwise.

Changes to payment processing days and ways we can communicate with you - 26 May 2023
Changes to payment processing days

We’ll be processing electronic payments to and from participating New Zealand banks seven days a week (365 days a year). Currently electronic payments between New Zealand banks are processed on business days only.

From 26 May, payments will be processed on their actual due date rather than the next business day. If someone is transferring money to you, you’ll receive the funds the same day. This change will apply to automatic payments, bill payments, direct credits, direct debits, merchant settlements.

We'll also be processing home loan repayments, business loan payments, term deposit and Notice Saver payments every day of the year.

There are no changes to

  • processing times for personal and business payments - these will continue to be processed between 9am and midnight and will move to seven days a week
  • card transactions, as these are already processed every day
  • direct debits to pay your Kiwibank credit card balance - these will continue to be processed on business days
  • same-day cleared payments - these will continue to be processed on business days

As a result of this change, we’re updating the following terms and conditions brochures effective 26 May 2023:

Change to the New Zealand Post Guarantee - 30 November 2022
Public notice from NZ Post
Notice to Creditors of Assignment of Guarantee from NZ Post to the Crown

New Zealand Post Limited (NZ Post) has provided a guarantee of certain payment obligations of Kiwibank Limited (Kiwibank) under a deed poll guarantee dated 22 November 2001, as amended on 16 November 2006 and 3 November 2010 and terminated by letter dated 31 October 2016 (Guarantee). Under the terms of the Guarantee, NZ Post guaranteed certain payment obligations to creditors of Kiwibank and Kiwibank’s subsidiaries that arose on or prior to the effective date of termination of the Guarantee (being 28 February 2017).

Pursuant to a deed of transfer dated 30 November 2022, NZ Post’s obligations under the Guarantee as at that date have been assigned and transferred from NZ Post to The Sovereign in right of New Zealand, acting by and through the Minister of Finance (the Crown). The assignment took effect on 30 November 2022, so on and from that date NZ Post’s obligations under the Guarantee became obligations of the Crown, rather than NZ Post. Further information can be found at kiwibank.co.nz.

Changes to investment terms and conditions

As a result of this change, the NZ Post Guarantee is now called the Crown Guarantee with effect from 30 November 2022. We're updated the following terms and conditions to reflect this change: Kiwibank Term Deposit Terms and Conditions, Kiwibank PIE Term Deposit Fund Terms and Conditions, Kiwibank PIE Online Call Fund Terms and Conditions, and the Kiwibank Notice Saver Fund Terms and Conditions.

We’re updating the Kiwibank Credit Cards webpage and the Travel Insurance Policy Wording to reflect a change in claims management.

Summary of the changes

Tower Limited have partnered with Allianz Partners to provide call centre services and manage claims for travel insurance policies available for selected Kiwibank Credit Cards. This means that Allianz Partners will now receive customer calls for emergency assistance, policy enquiries, claim enquires, medical screenings, duration and additional baggage enquires.

Prior to this, Healix received calls for emergency assistance, medical screenings and baggage enquiries while Tower received calls for policy enquires, duration extensions and claim enquires.

  • Replacing or diverting 0800 numbers that went to Healix or Tower with 0800 numbers to go to Allianz Partners

If you arrange your insurance through Kiwibank, you need to know that Kiwibank Limited doesn’t guarantee the obligations of, or any products provided by Tower Limited or AWP Services New Zealand Limited. Important terms, conditions and exclusions are set out in the Travel Insurance for Kiwibank Credit Cards Policy wording.

  • Important Information section in the policy wording is being updated to reflect the Tower / Allianz partnership and introduce AWP Services New Zealand Limited trading as Allianz Partners.

Travel Insurance for Insured Cards is underwritten by Tower Limited and managed by AWP Services New Zealand Limited trading as Allianz Partners (FSP758611).

Changes to our home loan documents - 25 August 2021

We’ve made some changes to our Home Loan Terms and Conditions and Home Loan Summary. This includes simplifying the content and terminology. For example, where we previously said ‘portions and components’, we’ve now gone with the simpler term of ‘loans’. The changes we’ve made won’t affect the way your home loan currently operates.

We’ve included a summary of the changes to the Home Loan Terms and Conditions below.

Summary of changes

Electronic consent

We’ve updated how we communicate with you, including that you may receive key information electronically. Put simply, we can now send any updates electronically, instead of by mail. All you’ll need to do is make sure your email address is up to date. You can do that in internet banking or the mobile app under ‘Settings’. To find out more, see section 13 ‘How do we communicate with you?’, within the new Home Loan Terms and Conditions brochure.

Offset ratio

If you have a term loan with an offset variable rate, we’ve introduced an offset ratio, so the benefit of your offset product may change in the future. The current ratio is set at ‘1’ (meaning that for every $1 held in an offset account, $1 of lending is offset). There's no change to the current offset ratio. If we decide to change it in the future, you'll be notified in advance of the changes. To find out more, see section 4 ‘What interest do you pay on your loan?’, within the new Home Loan Terms and Conditions brochure.

Payments and top ups

We’ve included additional information about how you can:

  • make payments on your loan, including when you can make lump sum payments
  • top up your home loan
  • change the amount of your regular payments.

Download a copy of the updated Home Loan Terms and Conditions and the sample Home Loan Summary. Both are effective from 25 August 2021.

Home Loan Terms and Conditions - 1 June 2021

We’ve updated our Home Loan Terms and Conditions. The change was effective from 1 June 2021.

Summary of change

We’ve replaced Section 2 – “When can your home loan documents change?” with the following wording:

"Your home loan agreement and these terms give us the right to make specific changes to your home loan agreement. For example, our right to reduce or cancel the maximum credit limit on an ongoing revolving portion.

In addition, we can change your home loan agreement, these terms and our fees n' limits brochure at any time, but we must give at least 14 days' notice before you are bound by the change.

Our general terms explain how those terms and conditions can be changed."

The words in bold have a specific meaning. You can find out the meaning of these words in our Home Loan Terms and Conditions.

The change makes it easier for us to roll out new and improved documents. While the change gives us a broader right to make changes, we’ll continue to treat you fairly and not use this right in an unreasonable manner.
