    Required documents to apply for a Frequent Flyer Card includes accountant contact details if self employed. I am self employed but do not use an accountant. What alternative proofs do you require?

    • finder Customer Care
      LouMay 16, 2016Staff

      Hi Sheila,

      Please note that finder.com.au is a financial comparison and information service and is not ANZ.

      Your accountant’s details are necessary when applying for a credit card as a self-employed because the bank needs proofs of your financial status. You could visit ANZ’s nearest branch or call their customer service to inquire if they accept alternative proofs.

      Cheers,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      There are a few different ways you can check your account balance. You can use ANZ Internet Banking and phone or mobile banking. Make sure you have the copy of your Customer registration number (CRN), credit card, debit card or Access card number with you as these will be needed on checking your balance. Please refer to this page on how to manage your ANZ credit card.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you for your question.

      Yes, you can use the ANZ Frequent Flyer credit card for these transactions. However, you’ll have to refer to the terms and conditions to confirm whether they’re considered eligible purchases that will accrue points.

      Yes, you should be able to cancel the card so long as you don’t have any outstanding balances. However, you’ll need to get in contact with ANZ directly to confirm the protocol for cancelling your card.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,
