Why can't I delete a payee?

You cannot delete a payee if you have future or recurring payment/s scheduled to any of the payment types you’ve saved for them.

  • For example, if you have recurring payments scheduled to a payee, that payee cannot be deleted.
  • You must first cancel any scheduled payments to that payee.

If you wish to edit a future dated or recurring payment, the request must be lodged with ANZ Internet Banking prior to 11.59pm Melbourne time on the day prior to the payment date.
