Things you should know

1 Monthly account fee waived for accounts with at least $2,000 deposited each calendar month (excludes Bank initiated transactions). A monthly account fee waiver will also apply if you’re under 25 years of age, or you’re a full-time or part-time tertiary student at an Australian educational institution or undertaking an Australian Apprenticeship on Student Options. You may also be eligible for a different monthly account fee exemption if you have an aged, disability or war veterans’ pension deposited in your account, have a balance of $50,000 or more in eligible contributing accounts, are reliant on over the counter services because of a disability or have an eligible home loan.

2 Attempts will generally be on consecutive business days. For NetBank scheduled payments, we will aim to make the first attempt on the day your scheduled payment is due, and another 4 attempts on subsequent business days.

3 Does not apply for Streamline Basic.

4 You can only incur one overdraw fee per account per day, regardless of the number of transactions or payments we allow to go through in that day. The fee is usually charged the next business day.
