Businesses, suppliers and customers from anywhere in the world can pay you directly into your business transaction account or a foreign currency account and payments can be made in any currency.
You can receive money into either your business transaction account or a foreign currency account from another bank almost anywhere in the world.
To comply with anti-money laundering legislation, the person or organisation sending you money needs to include:
If the sender doesn't include this information, we won't be able to credit the money to your account.
You may be asked to provide extra information like BSB numbers, sort codes, routing codes or IBAN numbers. These are just different terms used overseas for bank, branch and account numbers. Your full Kiwibank account number starting with ‘38’ includes these details.
For foreign currency accounts, contact our international services team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll be charged an inward international payment fee of NZ$12 when you receive a payment from an overseas bank account into your account. Other fees may also apply.
