As Kiwibank is going cheque-free from 28 February 2020, we want to help you get your business ready to go cheque-free. To ensure a smooth transition, we've created a checklist for you below.

Is your business ready to go cheque-free on 28 February 2020?


  • All staff involved with your business finances are aware of the change.
  • You've advised your customers that you’ll no longer be able to accept cheques and have alternative payment options to offer them
  • Any collateral that includes cheques as a payment option (e.g. invoices, statements or website) has been updated to remove the option.
  • If you’re still writing cheques, you've informed your payees to bank them before 28 February, and that you have other payment methods set up.
