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
