Top up your deferred account

Follow the instructions below to top up your deferred account.


Import entries exceeding the credit limit by no more than 20% will be processed.

However, in some cases, you may need clearance for items over your pre-approved credit limit. To stay within your limit, and enable us to release your items promptly, you can make a one-off “top up” payment by direct credit.

Note: any top up payment allocated to your account prior to direct debit will offset the direct debit amount for that month.

You can make the payment to:

  • Account name: New Zealand Customs Service
  • Account number: 03-0049-0000706-20
  • Bank name: 

Westpac Banking Corporation
New Zealand Government Branch
318 Lambton Quay
Wellington
New Zealand

  • Swift code: WPACNZ2W

Enter only your unique client code number as reference.

Please tell us at revenue@customs.govt.nz if you’re topping up your account.
