When you select 'By bank payment' this will ensure you are sent an invoice. You will get a receipt from your online purchases however for a full invoice please email or call us to advise us of this and we can sort this for you.
Please note: For all payments opting for bank payment as the bank option, your card will not be ordered until payment is received and when this invoice becomes 7 days overdue a $15 late payment fee will be added and every 30 days after that until the balance is paid in full. This is due to the costs incurred when following up on unpaid invoices and associated actions that need to be taken. If you have any queries about this please contact the SARNZ office.
