Alternatively, download our Register for Internet Banking for Business guide  (PDF 527KB)

What you’ll need to complete the form

The registration form will take about 10 minutes to complete. You’ll need to give us:

  • a BNZ everyday account number - any service fees will be deducted from this account
  • ID and residential address details of the person who will be your first user (initial site administrator), if that person isn’t already known to us as a customer or account owner
  • ID and residential addresses for anyone else you want to add to your site as authorisers or administrators, if they are not known to us as customers or account owners.

You’ll also set up permissions and transaction limits, so you need to think about how you want your users to access and use your internet banking site. For example if you need two people to authorise payments, you’ll need to set them up with the permissions to do this. 

You can add users, set permissions and transaction limits after your Internet Banking for Business site is set up.
