Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

You can transfer funds into your account from your Macquarie account or from most other financial institutions by using their online banking services.

Our branch (BSB) number is 182-512*.

Please note:
  • Transfers from Macquarie accounts will generally reach your account on the same business banking day. This does not include super or pension accounts
  • Transfers from other financial institutions are normally made overnight and generally reach your account the following business banking day. This means a transfer made on a Friday will generally be deposited the following Monday. Transfers made after business hours, however, will take an additional day to reach your account. For example, a transfer made after business hours on a Monday will generally be deposited on Wednesday.
Messaging requirements for self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs):
  • Where you have an SMSF, we offer an electronic message service that allows your account to receive employer super contribution payments and related messages electronically. The electronic service address (ESA) is MACQUARIESMSF.
  • For SuperStream rollovers, you’ll need an active ESA that provides for rollover SuperStream services. To find an ESA provider for rollovers, we recommend referring to the ATO’s register of SMSF messaging providers.
*Only for accounts listed at the start of the article. For BSBs relating to Macquarie Cash Management Trusts (CMTs) which were transitioned to Macquarie CMAs, please refer to the Product Information Statement or check your account online.

*If you have a Macquarie Investment Accumulator Account, please use the BSB 182-799 and your account number to make EFT payments into your account.

Internal funds transfer

To initiate a transfer between your Macquarie accounts, please see How do I make a withdrawal or payment from my investment or SMSF account using funds transfer or BPAY?

Transfers via an overseas bank

You can transfer funds to your Macquarie CMA from overseas by:

  • bank draft drawn at an Australian bank, or by
  • telegraphic transfer in Australian dollars (AUD). Please instruct the sending bank to quote our SWIFT code: MACQAU2S XXX.


To send funds to your account via BPAY, contact the financial institution holding the funds, which must be a BPAY payer. Use the following details to make the transfer:
  • Biller code: 667022
  • Reference number: your cash account number

If you have a Macquarie Investment Accumulator Account, please use the Biller code 423152 and your account number as the reference number to make BPAY deposits into your account.

Please note BPAY deposits take two business days to clear.

Making direct debits

Direct debits are the easiest way to automate regular deposits into your account.

To set up a direct debit from an account you have with another financial institution, you can elect this on the online application at the time your account is opened and complete the Direct Debit Request form.

This form can also be used to facilitate a one-off direct debit.

The name of the bank account that you're debiting needs to match the name of your Macquarie account. You can request a direct debit from your joint bank account into your individual Macquarie account, just make sure that the direct debit request is signed by both joint account holders.

You’ll need to provide a copy of a recent bank statement (that’s less than six months old) for the account you’re debiting which is used to verify the account details.

In circumstances where the account you are nominating for direct debits doesn’t issue statements, we will accept alternative documents that clearly reflect the account name and details, for example a Transaction Report or screenshot of the online bank statement.

Posting a cheque to us

You can deposit cheques at a Macquarie branch. All cheques must be made payable to:

Macquarie Investment Manager II (full account name)
eg Macquarie Investment Manager II / Macquarie Investment Consolidator II John Citizen

Cheques should be accompanied by either a new application form or a deposit slip (available online) and be sent to us. Cheques take approximately three business days to clear and must be cleared before your selected investments can be purchased.

You can find cheque deposit slips here.

You can also deposit cheques at any participating National Australia Bank (NAB) branch. We will usually credit your Wrap Cash Account on the same business day, provided you lodge your deposit at the counter on that day. Interest on the deposit then accrues from that day. NAB does not accept cash deposits or third-party cheques on our behalf. Please do not use the Express Cheque Deposit facility at NAB branches.

1. Write the following depositing account details on the back of each cheque:
  • account name
  • account number
  • account BSB
  • a contact number (mobile or landline).

2. Post the cheque(s) to:

Macquarie Bank Limited
GPO Box 4045
Sydney NSW 2001
