How to apply online

You can open a Term Deposit online under a personal, joint, or Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) name. To do so, you need to be 18 years or over and have: 

  • A minimum deposit of $5,000 (call or visit your nearest branch for investments $2,000,000 and over)
  • An Australian residential address
  • An existing NetBank ID and CommBank account in your name. You’ll use this account to transfer money across to open your Term Deposit
  • Your Tax File Number (TFN) or TFN exemption handy. You don’t have to provide your TFN or exemption to your Term Deposit but, by law, we have to withhold tax if you choose not to
  • If you are opening a joint account, each account holder must provide their TFN individually
  • If you're an SMSF customer, you’ll need your ABN. To get an exemption from withholding tax, you’ll need to provide your TFN or TFN exemption separately by calling us on 13 2221 or at your nearest branch

For joint accounts:

  • You can open this account with another person if you already have a joint account together with us
  • To open up a joint account for the first time or with someone new please visit your nearest branch together

Provide maturity instructions

Know what you’re earning

The fixed rate of return means you’ll always know what your investment’s worth and can plan how to use the interest earned.

Opt-in for free maturity alerts and e-notices

Opt in for alerts and we’ll send you an email or SMS a week before your Term Deposit matures – so you never miss your maturity date. 

Opt in for e-notices and replace the clutter of paper notices. Look back at old notices in NetBank and we’ll email you when a new one is available.

Track your investment

Options at maturity

Renewal

Place in Holding Facility

Place your money in our Holding Facility while you decide what to do.
