Receive an overseas payment

Last updated: 30/01/2018 02.10 PM

What information do I need to provide to receive an overseas payment?

To receive an overseas payment you should provide the other party with the following details:

  • your account number
  • your account name
  • your residential address listed on the account
  • ANZ's full beneficiary bank name: ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited
  • ANZ's SWIFT code: ANZBNZ22 (also known as a Bank Identifier Code or BIC)
    Note: If the other party requires an 11 digit SWIFT, use ANZBNZ22XXX


If the other party requests an IBAN:

IBAN is an account format used by European banks. New Zealand banks do not use this format and an IBAN is not required to send money to an ANZ bank account. Other parties with an IBAN field on their overseas payment form can leave this field blank.

If the other party requests a National Clearing Code, Routing Number, BSB Number or Sort Code:

Some banks may ask for a National Clearing Code, Routing Number, BSB Number or Sort Code. If this is required by the bank sending the money they should use the first six digits (bank and branch codes) of your account number for which you wish to receive the payment into.

e.g. For 01-0123-0123456-00 use 010123
