Switch your regular payments

Switching all your regular payments that you currently manage can seem like a big job, but we have some simple steps to get you started.   

Step 1: Review your transactions

Take a look over your statements on your old account and identify which payments you’d like to switch. This is a great time to note what dates your payments come in and out, to help your budget planning!

Step 2: Set up your online payments

Set up any regular BPAY®, Pay Anyone or periodical payments that you'd like to manage yourself in Heritage Online (internet banking).

If you need to register for Heritage Online, call our Queensland based Contact Centre on 14 14 22. They are available 24/7 to take your call.  

Step 3: Contact your service providers

Advise your service providers of your new bank account details or your new Visa Debit or Credit card details once you receive it in the mail. 

If you have an online account with your service provider you can usually update your payment details online. Or simply give them a call and update your details over the phone. 

Switch your direct credits & debits

We can help you switch all your direct credits & debits that you hold with other companies at once. Direct debit and credits are payments set up by companies who deduct (or pay) money directly to your account using your account number & BSB. 

Simply complete the Switch of Regular Payments form and return it to us to start the switching process. 

Things you need to know about switching

  • It can take up to 6 weeks for your payments to be switched.
  • Remember to leave some money in your old account until all payments have successfully switched over.
  • We can only switch payments for you that use your BSB and account number. Any payments that use your debit card or credit card details, or that you set up yourself online, can't be switched with this process.
Choose how you spend
