Changes to annual return payment options

Banks across Aotearoa are phasing out the use of cheques. As a result, Charities Services will no longer be able to accept cheques as payment for annual return fees from June 2021.

Charities will be able to pay their annual return fees online by internet banking. Simple instructions on how to pay online are on our website.(external link)

Charities Services will be available to support charities through this change as we understand this may take some time for charities to work through.
