Direct Debits

New Zealand based NZIQS members can now pay their membership subscriptions by Direct Debit.

Direct Debit – How it works

A direct debit (DD) is an electronic payment service which allows the automatic transfer of funds directly from your bank account to the NZIQS bank account. NZIQS direct debits are deducted on a Thursday on a fortnightly payment plan. You can pay off your subscription in either five or ten payments. By completing a Direct Debit form you authorise NZIQS to take the agreed payments from your nominated bank account.

The following banks provide a direct debit service:

  • ANZ
  • ASB
  • BNZ
  • Citibank N.A.
  • HSBC
  • Kiwibank
  • TSB
  • Westpac

If your bank is not listed above, we are unable to set up a DD for you.

If you would like to set up a direct debit authority contact

Career Break Policy

If you take leave from work for at least 6 months, then you can apply for a reduction in your membership fees.

Your career break may be for parental leave, or you might be taking care of your own, or family member’s health. You may be unemployed, gone back to studying full-time, doing voluntary work overseas or in other circumstances that we may consider.

While you are on a career break, you’ll receive all your usual membership benefits to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the profession, such as receiving newsletters, attending events at reduced member rates, using the Member Benefit App and login access to the website.
