What information do I need to provide an overseas bank or to someone else who wants to send an International Money Transfer to my ASB account?

Last Updated: 07 Sep 2023

A deposit into your ASB bank account can be made from anywhere in the world provided the sender has the right information. You will need to provide the following:

Beneficiary name

This should be your full name as shown on your ASB account.

Beneficiary physical address

This should be your full physical address including post code and country. P.O Boxes or other non-physical addresses are not accepted.

Beneficiary account 

Your full account number. For example, your ASB NZD account is formatted like this, 12-3nnn-0nnnnnn-nn, while your ASB Foreign Currency Account is in this format, nnnnnnnn-[CCY]-nn.

If an IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is requested provide your full ASB account number, as above.

If a BSB or Sort Code is requested please provide the first six digits of your full bank account number – these represent the bank and branch codes, i.e. 12-3nnn


ASB’s SWIFT code is ASBBNZ2A. This is used to identify that ASB is your bank and is sometimes referred to as a Bank Identifier Code (BIC)

Beneficiary Bank Address

ASB Bank Limited, 12 Jellicoe Street, Auckland Central, Auckland 1010, New Zealand

Please note: ASB's fee for receiving an inbound IMT directly to an NZD account is $15* (no charge for a transfer to a Foreign Currency Account and waived for amounts of NZD $100 or less).

*May be subject to fees imposed by other banks.
