Corporate Accounts


Service Introduction

To meet the daily settlement needs of corporate clients conducting business in New Zealand, we provide a range of corporate accounts and payment services to facilitate convenient fund transfers.


Key Features

Currently, our corporate accounts support worldwide payments in six major currencies: New Zealand Dollars (NZD), Australian Dollars (AUD), US Dollars (USD), Offshore Chinese Renminbi (CNH), Euros (EUR), and Hong Kong Dollars (HKD). In addition, we offer favorable account fees to local businesses by not charging monthly management fees on our Corporate Current Account and currently have no minimum balance requirements (until further notice).


Deposit Rates

Our Corporate Current Account is non-interest bearing. If your business would like to earn deposit interest, we also offer Corporate Saving Account services. Please contact our Corporate & Institutional Banking Department for rates, terms and conditions.
