Pay your property rates from overseas

How to pay your property rates from overseas 

Making a payment from a New Zealand bank account is the easiest way to pay.

If you don't have a New Zealand bank account you can:

  • buy a bank draft or request a cheque from your overseas bank for the New Zealand dollar amount
  • pay by credit card - contact your bank for fee information
  • arrange an international transfer via internet banking - check with your bank to see if they offer this service.

Swift codes

Swift codes are unique bank identifiers for transferring money internationally.

Our bank is ASB - swift code ASBBNZ2A.

Bank fees

Payments from overseas bank accounts incur bank fees.

A fee is charged by the overseas bank and the New Zealand bank. You need to include the New Zealand bank fee in your payment.

Contact ASB or your overseas bank for fee information.
