IRD are now only paying refunds you may be due for into a bank account, they are no longer issuing cheques.
This means it is vital we have your correct bank account number on record for the account you want refunds paid to. Please ensure you advise us of the preferred bank account number(s) when you deliver your accounts information to us.
If you do not provide us with your bank account number there will be a delay in preparing your tax return while we confirm the information with you.
Once assessed by IRD, we will check your assessment and notify you that the refund has been issued, but sometimes the refund goes through before we receive the assessment. Please await our confirmation that the assessment has been checked before you spend the money. In the case of an incorrect refund we will notify you and advise you how to pay the money back to IRD.
