Paying Your Taxes by Cash or EFTPOS at Westpac
When you make tax payments at a Westpac branch or Smart ATM, you will now need to have a barcode to ensure the payment goes to the right place.
Barcodes are usually printed on Inland Revenue returns, statements or letters. You can also create a barcode on the IRD website for printing or presenting on your mobile device.
To generate a barcode go to ird.govt.nz/barcode
Other payment options
The other usual payment options are also available, including:
- myIR: Direct debit and card payments can be made securely through myIR online services.
- Online banking: Through your bank's website.
- Credit or debit card via our website: Credit or debit cards can be used to make online payments.
- Self-service phone line: Credit or debit cards can also be used to make payments via our self-service phoneline 24/7.
- Automatic payments: Online or in-branch payments are not for everyone, so automatic payments might be better. It allows for two signatories, and when completed correctly is an instruction to make a regular series of payments, such as debt or arrears.

What Our Customers Think
I used to work out my GST and process it manually which would take me at least a full day every two months. Angelina then set up reconcilliations rules and other quick tools, and showed me how to do all my reconcilliations and process my GST returns through Xero which now takes me no time at all!
