  • delays or errors in the execution of any transactions because of your ancillary equipment;
  • the supply and maintenance of any equipment necessary to access these Online Services (eg. personal computer and modem);

The account name does not form part of the internet payment instructions and may not be checked (Please refer to 1.11 Transfer). It may not be possible to recover funds from an unintended recipient. (Please refer to 14. Mistaken internet payment);
  • any refusal of another party, third party or otherwise authorised to receive a payment instruction from you; or
  • any indirect, economic or consequential loss suffered or sustained by you as a consequence of your use of Customs Bank Internet and Mobile Banking or the availability of these Online Services where you should have been aware that Customs Bank Internet and Mobile Banking was unavailable for use and/or our equipment was malfunctioning.

14. Mistaken internet payment
This does not apply to BPAY payments.

14.1 You should report mistaken internet payments to us as soon as possible after you become aware of them. You can report mistaken internet payments to us by visiting a Service Centres or by calling the Assistance Centre on:

  • 131 728 if calling within Australia;
  • (+61 2) 9287 0888 if calling overseas.

We will give you a notification number or some other form of acknowledgment which you should retain as evidence of the date and time of your report.

14.2 We will deal with mistaken internet payments in accordance with the ePayments Code, where that Code applies to the transaction. We may be the sending institution, namely the financial institution whose Member made the payment, or the receiving institution, namely the financial institution whose Member received the payment (this Member is the unintended recipient of the payment). We will be the sending institution where the payment is made from your Customs Bank account. We will be the receiving institution where the payment is made to your Customs Bank account.

14.3 You must ensure that internet payment details are correct. You and your user are solely responsible for providing correct payment details including amount and payee details. We will return to you any funds recovered by us on your behalf from an unintended recipient in respect of a mistaken internet payment made in accordance with details provided by you or your user.

14.4 Where a financial institution other than us is the receiving or sending financial institution, we cannot guarantee that it will follow the processes in the ePayments Code. A financial institution is unlikely to follow these processes if it is not an authorised deposit-taking institution for the purposes of the Banking Act. We are not liable for any loss suffered if it does not follow these processes.

14.5 Where the sending institution is not satisfied that the payment is a mistaken internet payment, it is not required to take any further action.

14.5 Notwithstanding anything set out below, where the unintended recipient of the mistaken payment is receiving income support payments from Centrelink, the receiving institution must recover the funds from that recipient in accordance with the Code of operation for Centrelink Direct Credit Payments.

14.6 Where you or another financial institution advises us that you are, or we think you may be, the sender or recipient of a mistaken internet payment, you must give us, as soon as reasonably practicable and within the time we request, any information we reasonably require to enable us to determine whether the payment is a mistaken internet payment.

14.7 The process for retrieving mistaken payments under the ePayments Code where there are sufficient funds available in the unintended recipients account is as follows, where the sending institution is satisfied that the mistaken internet payment has occurred:

Where the report is made within 10 business days of the payment:

  • If the receiving institution is satisfied that a mistaken internet payment has occurred, it will return the funds to the sending institution within 5 business days of the request or any reasonably longer period up to a maximum of 10 business days.
    Where the report is made between 10 business days and 7 months of the payment:
  • The receiving institution will investigate the payment and complete the investigation within 10 business days of receiving a request;
  • If the receiving institution is satisfied that the mistaken internet payment has occurred, it will prevent the unintended recipient from withdrawing the funds for a further 10 business days and notify the unintended recipient that they will withdraw the funds if that recipient does not establish they are entitled to the funds within that 10 day period.
  • If the unintended recipient does not establish they are entitled to the funds within that time, the receiving institution will return the funds to the sending institution within 2 business days of the end of that period (during which time the recipient will be prevented from withdrawing the funds).

Where a report is made after 7 months of payment:

  • If the receiving institution is satisfied a mistaken internet payment occurred, it must seek the consent of the unintended recipient to return the funds.
  • In each case where the receiving institution is not satisfied that a mistaken internet payment has
    occurred, it may (but is not required to) seek consent of the unintended recipient to return the funds.
  • Where the funds are returned to the sending institution, it will return the funds to the holder as soon as practicable.

14.8 Where both the sending and receiving institution are satisfied that a mistaken internet payment has occurred but there are not sufficient credit funds available in the account of the unintended recipient, the receiving institution will use reasonable endeavours to recover the funds from the unintended recipient.

14.9 Where you receive a mistaken internet payment and:
(a) both we and the receiving institution are satisfied that a payment made to your account is a mistaken internet payment; and
(b) sufficient credit funds are available in your account to the value of that payment; and
(c) the mistaken internet payment is reported 7 months or less after the payment; and
(d) for mistaken internet payments reported between 10 business days and 7 months of the payment, you do not establish that you are entitled to the payment within the relevant 10 business day period, we will, without your consent, deduct from your account an amount equal to that mistaken payment and send that amount to the financial institution of the payer.
If there are insufficient funds in your account, you must co-operate with us to facilitate payment by you of an amount of the mistaken internet payment to the payer.

14.10 We can prevent you from withdrawing funds that are the subject of a mistaken internet payment where we are required to do so to meet our obligations under the ePayments Code.


15. What should you do if you think we have made a mistake?
