How to transfer money from another bank

If you want to transfer money to your savings account from a different bank, here’s the details you’ll need:

 

  • BSB
  • Account number
  • Account name

Account details

Finding your account details is as easy as signing into Westpac Online Banking

Once you’ve signed in, you’ll see the details of any Westpac accounts you have. Take a look at your new Westpac savings account and you’ll see a 12 digit number:
 

  • Your BSB number is the first 6 numbers
  • Your account number is the remaining 6 numbers

Account name

What about your account name?

That’s an easy one – this is the name you used to open the account, in most cases your own name.
