What you will need to apply for a GoalSaver account

What you’ll need to apply

  • Your personal contact details
  • Your Tax File Number (TFN) or TFN Exemption. It’s not an offence to withhold your TFN for the deposit account. However, if you don’t quote it, the Bank is required by law to deduct tax from any interest earned on the deposit account, above a certain threshold.


You may also need

  • Your NetBank Client number (if you are already registered to use NetBank)


Who can apply?

You can open a GoalSaver account if you (and any joint applicant):

  • Are 18 years old or over.
  • Are opening the account in personal names (maximum of two applicants for joint accounts) and the account is to be used for personal purposes.
  • Have, and will maintain, an Australian residential address.
  • Do not already have 2 or more GoalSaver accounts.

In most cases, the easiest way of applying is to apply online. However, applications for accounts where funds are held in trust cannot be accepted online. If you wish to open a trust account, please apply at any branch of the Bank
