AFSA is making a change to its payment options for some transactions, as part of a wider project to streamline and modernise its processes.
As of 1 October 2020, payment by cheque will not be accepted for services provided by AFSA that are not processed through AFSA’s online services.
Transactions such as unclaimed dividends and undistributed balances will need to be paid via EFT payments, and a remittance advice will need to be provided – paper cheques that are sent directly to AFSA offices or are not required to have a payment advice will no longer be accepted.
EFT payment details are available on the AFSA website.
Online services that offer cheque payment via a payment advice will not be impacted by the upcoming changes. Please ensure you continue to download your payment advice and follow the instructions.
Questions about the new payment process can be directed to AccountsReceivable [at] afsa.gov.au.
