To make your life easier we also provide a full electronic banking service for the payment of Owners’ Corporation levies. You can pay over the phone or online with any major credit card using DEFT or BPAY and if your bank doesn’t offer electronic banking, payments can be simply made via Direct Debit through Macquarie Bank or over the counter at any Australia Post office.
If your bank offers BPAY, you can use DEFT to pay your levies by phone, directly from your bank account. Simply call your financial institution and follow the voice prompts. When making a payment you will be asked to enter the biller code and reference number. Your DEFT reference number is located under the barcode on your levy notice.
If your bank doesn’t offer BPAY there are 3 other ways you can pay by phone
You authorise Macquarie Bank to deduct payments directly from your chosen bank, building society or credit union account, but only when you call to authorise them.
To use this option, you must complete an application form. Call us on 1800 672162 and we’ll post one to you.
Once your application has been processed, you’ll be able to transfer funds by calling 1300 309300, entering your DEFT reference number and a security code that you choose yourself.
Some Body Corporates also allow you to pay over the phone using your credit or charge card. To pay this way, all you have to do is call 1300 309300. If available, this option will be printed on your levy notice.
With a single phone call, you can also program levy payments in advance from your selected account. Simply follow the recorded instructions when you call. You can also update your programmed payments at any time.
You’ll be quoted a transaction number whenever you call. ** When using direct debit options always make sure that there are sufficient funds in your nominated account, or the payment will be dishonoured and a fee will apply.
PAY AT ANY AUSTRALIA POST OUTLET
You probably already pay some of your bills at Australia Post; and now you can pay your levies as well. Present your DEFT levy notice at any Australia Post outlet and pay with cash or a cheque. Australia Post will give you a receipt.
PAY BY MAIL
Simply make out a cheque and write your DEFT reference number on the back. Then mail it with the DEFT payment slip to the address indicated on your levy notice.
DEFT PAYMENT SYSTEMS ARE PROMPT & SECURE
It’s Economical. Payments are made free of charge at any Australia Post outlet, by phone for the cost of a local call, or by mail. Your financial institution’s normal transaction fees will apply for cheque and direct debit transfers.
