What is my electronic funds transfer code?

Your electronic funds transfer (EFT) code is the reference number. It is printed directly above the barcode on your payment slip.

Your EFT code is also provided on the 'Payment options - details' screen (for business and tax agent portal users) or immediately below the biller code and titled EFT code, on the details screen of your ECI e-BAS (where access is available).

A receipt number is issued at the time the payment is made. Please record it for future reference.
