Where you have provided ANZ with a specific permission via your device settings to access or collect certain Information (such as your contacts, camera or location), you may change or revoke this permission at any time via your device settings. ANZ will then collect your Information according to your updated settings.

  • Government related identifiers: For example, your tax file or tax identification number, drivers licence number or passport number;

1.3 Tax File Number

If you are applying for an interest-bearing account, you may wish to provide ANZ with your Australian Tax File Number (TFN), TFN exemption code or Australian Business Number (for business accounts). Do not provide your TFN if you are applying for an account that is not interest-bearing. You are not obliged to provide your TFN and declining to quote your TFN is not an offence. However, if you choose not to provide it, ANZ is required by law to deduct resident withholding tax, generally at the highest marginal tax rate, and any applicable government levies from interest payments and pay this money to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). ANZ is authorised by taxation law to collect your TFN to determine if you are subject to withholding tax on any interest payments and for reporting on such matters to the ATO. ANZ will not use your TFN for any other purpose.  If you are unsure whether the product you are applying for is an interest-bearing account, please call 13 13 14 or visit any ANZ branch.
