Making payments using Centrepay deductions

If you are applying for, or have a current instalment arrangement, Revenue NSW can arrange to have the payments deducted from your Centrelink benefit using the Centrepay program.

Things you need to know

  • Centrepay deductions are voluntary.

  • Centrepay deductions can only be used to repay fines included on a payment plan.

  • Deductions can only be made fortnightly and must cover your agreed repayment amounts. You can pay more if you wish.

  • Deductions will automatically cease when your agreed payment balance is reached.

  • You must contact us to add new overdue fines to your repayment arrangement. We will then reassess your repayment amounts and advise Centrelink of any changes.

  • If your Centrelink payments are cancelled, or you stop making payments via Centrepay, you are still required to make your agreed payments. If you do not make the agreed payments, your payment plan will be cancelled and further enforcement action taken.

  • You can make changes to your Centrepay deductions by contacting either Revenue NSW or Centrelink.
