Assistance for customers affected by bushfires.

With bushfires continuing to ravage communities around Australia, we have watched so many lives destroyed. While we know the crisis is still far from over, we want to let those who have been impacted know that we are thinking of you and are ready to help in any way we can.

If you are experiencing financial hardship and need support, please get in touch with us so that together, we can work out a way to make sure you and your family are ok. Please visit your nearest Beyond Bank branch if safe to do so, call us on 13 25 85 or send us a secure message via Internet Banking.

Customers who have sustained damage to your property and/or motor vehicle(s) as a result of these bushfires, and have insurance through our partner Allianz, are encouraged to contact them directly on their claims line 1300 555 030, or online at Allianz Claims as soon as it is safe to do so.

Customers who wish to donate to the Beyond Bank Foundation Bushfire Appeal can do so via our website. 100% of funds raised are going to Vinnies.

Tax Residency Self-Certification

Recently we contacted select customers in regards to a new legal requirement for banks to confirm if their customers have tax obligations with any foreign countries. This requirement is due to Governments around the world, including Australia, introducing a tax information sharing arrangement.

For customers who have foreign tax responsibilities, based on Common Reporting Standards (CRS) we are required to provide certain information about them to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) each year. The ATO may exchange this information with foreign tax authorities.

For further information regarding CRS, information can be found on the Australian Tax Office’s website. https://www.ato.gov.au/General/International-tax-agreements/In-detail/International-arrangements/Automatic-exchange-of-information---CRS-and-FATCA/?page=1

For the security of your accounts, Internet Banking no longer supports Internet Explorer 8 or earlier versions.

As you may know, Microsoft recently made the decision to discontinue its support of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8). This leaves users exposed to potential security risks. As a result, Beyond Bank's Internet Banking will no longer support Internet Explorer 8 or earlier versions. Going forward, Beyond Bank will support Internet Explorer 9 or later to ensure the security of your accounts.
