New Zealand bank account numbers

New Zealand bank account numbers holding New Zealand Dollars (NZD) follow a standardised format of 15 or 16 digits:

  • a prefix representing the bank and branch (six digits), otherwise known as the National Clearing Code (NCC);
  • the body (seven digits); and
  • the suffix representing the product/account type (two or three digits).

While the New Zealand format is similar to Australia's Bank State Branch (BSB), the two systems are not interchangeable. New Zealand bank account numbers in foreign currencies vary by bank.

Bank codes are coordinated by Payments NZ who administer the Bulk Electronic Clearing System (BECS).
