Understand overdue accounts

Find out about overdue accounts, and what to do to keep your Spark services connected. Find out tips for avoiding billing problems and what to do if you need more time to pay.

  • If a bill is left unpaid after the due date, you'll first be charged a late fee. Find out more about late fees
  • Your services may be suspended. This means you won't be able to use your landline, broadband or mobile phone.
  • You can find out when your bill is due by using MySpark. Sign in to MySpark
  • You can get a reminder notification three days before your bill is due, either by email or, if you have a Spark mobile, via text. You can set up the reminder in MySpark. Set up bill due notification
  • The date you need to pay your bill by is on the front page of your bill. It's beside the Current charges heading. 
  • Change the date you pay your bill by filling out the Change bill statement date form. Go to form
  • Can't find your bill? Phone 0800 000 000 to find out your next payment date

Note: When you change your bill's due date, the dates that the charges on your bill relate to will likely change. This will show on your first bill after you make the change. 

It can take a few days for an electronic payment to show on your account in MySpark and the Spark app. There may be a few reasons why it's not showing on your statement:

  • Double check the account number you used to pay us is correct
    • Spark bank account: 01-1820-0000123-000
  • Check to see if your bank declined your payment
  • If your payment is still not showing, fill out the Question a bill form. Note: you'll need to be signed into MySpark to fill it out. Go to form
  • We may be able to arrange a payment extension for you. Some conditions apply. Find out if you're eligible. Sign in to MySpark
  • Let us know if your phone needs to stay connected because of a medical condition. Complete the Medical Dependency form. View Medical Dependency form
  • If you haven’t paid your bill, we’ll try contacting you to let you know your account is overdue. We’ll do this by sending you one of the following: phone message, text, email or reminder letter. Note these are not guaranteed.
  • We may be able to arrange a payment extension for you. Some conditions apply. Find out if you're eligible. Sign in to MySpark
  • Depending if you get a phone message, text, email or a letter, you'll need to pay the full amount within:
    • Two days of receiving a phone message or text

  • Within seven days of your service's suspension, pay your account in full to have your service reconnected. Otherwise, you can call 128 to talk to us about your options.
  • There are a variety of ways to pay your account. Find out about ways to pay
  • Once you've paid your account in full, call 128 for reconnection (or 0800 800 123 from a non-Spark phone)
  • A reconnection fee of $58 per service applies. Find out more about reconnection fees
