There are a number of ways to make contributions to Amanah KiwiSaver Plan:
Employee and employer Contributions
If you are employed, when you join Amanah KiwiSaver Plan your employer will automatically deduct contributions from your before-tax salary or wages at the contribution rate you selected (3%, 4%, 6%, 8% or 10%). You may also be eligible to receive employer contributions where your employer will match your contributions up to 3% of your income.
If you are self-employed, not employed or wish to contribute more to your Amanah KiwiSaver Plan account, you can make voluntary contributions to Amanah KiwiSaver Plan by:
Account name: TEA Custodians (AmanahNZ) Limited
Account number: 12-3198-0066681-02
Choose the "Pay tax" option on your internet banking service. You need to include:
period "0" (zero).
the tax type "KSS", and
your IRD number
If you're an employee, once you've been a member for 12 months you can take a break from saving (from 3 - 12 months) - this is called a savings suspension. A savings suspension is for employees who want a break from making KiwiSaver contributions from their pay.
