Holiday payment information over Easter and ANZAC Day

If you’re expecting money to come in or go out over Easter and ANZAC Day, please be aware that payment timings will be affected.

Processing times for payments

No payments between banks will be processed over the following public holidays:

  • Good Friday (Friday, 10 April)
  • Easter Monday (Monday, 13 April)
  • ANZAC Day (observed Monday, 27 April).

Payments

  • Incoming payments: If you normally have direct credits, automatic payments or direct debits scheduled on the day of a public holiday (e.g. on a Friday), you may be paid earlier (e.g. on a Thursday).
  • Outgoing payments: If you make a payment to another bank through internet banking or normally have outgoing payments on the day of a public holiday (e.g. on a Monday), your payments will be processed on the next business day (e.g. on a Tuesday).

Payment dates may vary, so please check with the organisation paying you. If you have automatic payments normally set to go out on the day of a public holiday, remember to leave enough funds in your account to cover later payments and to avoid dishonour fees.
