Managing Account Signatories

How do I add a new signatory to my account(s)?

Complete the Notice of Authority (PDF 212KB) form to provide the Bank with details of the persons authorised to operate your organisation's accounts. This form only needs to be completed once if the signatories and operations are the same across all accounts held by the organisation.

For any account opening and authorities change applications submitted from 24 January 2020, all account signatories will be required to present at least one form of photo ID containing their full name, and date of birth (such as a drivers licence, passport) to an authorised Westpac representative or by visiting a local Westpac Branch to be identified.   A secondary form of identification may be required in some instances.

If any of your accounts have different operations or signatories, a Notice of Authority for a specific account (PDF 210KB) must be completed for those accounts.

Complete the Notice of Authority of addition to persons authorised (PDF 82KB) if your organisation needs to add new account signatories to its existing accounts.

Annexures (for the above forms):

Annexure 'A' to Notice of Authority (PDF 58KB)

If there is insufficient space in the Notice of Authority form for the details of every person authorised to operate your accounts, please tick "Yes" at the end of the "Details of Persons Authorised" section and use the Annexure "A" form.

How do I remove a signatory from my account(s)?

When your organisation needs to remove a person as an authorised signatory, you must:

  • Send written advice to the Bank detailing the name of the person to be removed and the account(s) the person is to be removed from
  • The advice must be on your organisation's letterhead and be signed by those persons within your organisation who are able to provide authority instructions to the Bank e.g. two Directors or one Director and the Secretary.

Note: Where you are removing a signatory to an account, you may complete the Notice of Authority of addition to persons authorised (PDF 82KB) as an alternative.
