Making international payments through FX Online
Watch our demo to see how making international payments online will make your life easier.
International banking on the go
With our Mobile Business Banking app you can authorise international payments, view FX rates, and transfer funds to and from NZD accounts from almost anywhere.
International payments and transfers can be authorised between 7am and 7pm on business days. And to make things even quicker you can authorise currency batches for large volumes of payments. If you need to find a particular transaction you can view all your activity from the last 13 months online or export it to a spreadsheet. This makes it easy to search by beneficiary, amount, currency, BNZ reference or date range.
Internet Banking for Business's individual permissions means you can manage which team members can create beneficiaries, make payments and authorise international payments.
