BSB number


#1

:sweat: dad is currently trying to deposit into my BNZ account from his Australian Westpac account, it keeps asking him for a 6 digit BSB number. I rang a while ago and was told this was the first 6 digits of my bank account number but this will not work!! Please help!

NZ accounts don’t have BSB numbers like Australian banks do. You are right that the nearest equivalent is the first 6 digits of your account number (bank and branch “02nnnn”). To send money to NZ from offshore he is best to provide BNZ’s BIC SWIFT code which is BKNZNZ22.
