If you've made a payment and it's missing from your account, it could be for a number of reasons.
It can take several days for a cheque payment to be processed (including postage and processing).
Is the cheque still outstanding, or has it been paid by the bank?
If the cheque has not been presented after several days, or the cheque has been paid but has not appeared in your account, send us an online enquiry with the following details:
- BSB and account number of cheque account
- cheque number
- drawer's name, and
- the date the cheque was sent.
Do you have a receipt from Australia post?
If you've made payment at Australia Post but don't have a receipt, you'll need to contact them directly.
If you do have a receipt and the payment hasn't gone through, or the amount was incorrect, send us an online enquiry and include the receipt as an attachment.
BPAY payments can take up to three days to be processed.
