How it works

Adviser Initiated Payments (AIP) is available for a number of different payment types including: 

  • PayAnyone, available to any account in Australia with a limit of $500,000 per day
  • transfers to any nominated account
  • unlimited BPAY® payments (subject to BPAY biller code amount limits).

If you’d like to make a payment to a new payee or BPAY biller, you can add the payee or BPAY biller to your list of saved payees and billers, whilst making a payment. 

The new payee or BPAY biller won’t appear under the Saved payees and billers section of the ‘Account or biller you’re paying to’ until the payment is fully authorised.

Payment Authorisation

Depending on your authority level and the payment type, the payment may require authorisation by your client. 

If the payment requires authorisation by your client, refer to our Help Centre article Adviser initiated payments to learn more.

If you have Limited Funds Transfer Authority (LFTA) you’ll will be able to create a payment between linked accounts, without client authorisation. Linked accounts include, Macquarie Vision Savings (CMHV) to Macquarie Vision Cash (CMHM) and Macquarie Cash Management (CMA) accounts.

If you hold tax authority against your client’s account, any tax payments won’t require further client authorisation.  

If the payment doesn’t require authorisation: 

  1. Review the details of the payment and select Confirm transfer 
  2. The details of the payment will be presented on the Send payment screen. From here you can Print confirmation, make another payment from this account, go to manage payments, or go to transaction history for the cash account.
