Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is the preferred option for deposits, providing a more direct and secure means of payment processing.

Cheque deposits will still be accepted however, in line with significantly reduced usage, we expect cheques will be phased out in the coming years.

When you issue invoices, we suggest that you consider adding wording similar to the following to indicate your payment preference.

We prefer payment by EFT to BSB and Account <provide your BSB & account details>

If you wish to pay by cheque, please make cheques payable to <the account name on your Rabobank statement>
