Interest Offset

With an Everyday Offset or a Mortgage Interest Saver Account (MISA) linked to your home loan, you can get greater flexibility. Any funds deposited into the account, such as your salary, savings or other  income may# offset the loan balance so you could pay less interest whilst still having easy access to your money.

We can tailor a home loan that's right for you, and provide the tools and insights to meet your needs.

Benefits of Everyday Offset

Everyday Offset combines the convenience of a Complete Access Account with 100% offset of the balance against a Standard Variable Rate Home Loan.

  • Full (100%) offset, which means that interest is not charged on the part of the home loan balance equal to the balance of the Everyday Offset.
  • The ability to link your home loan to multiple accounts in the same names as your linked home loan. You may be charged one initial linking fee ($95) and a monthly fee ($10). Check with your Home Lending Specialist to see if these fees apply.
  • All the real-time banking and transaction features you need, so you can easily and conveniently access your money in your account.
  • Access your funds via NetBank, ATMs, EFTPOS/EFTPOB, Debit MasterCard®, telephone banking. BPAY®, direct debit, direct credit and branches.
  • No minimum balance, so every cent in your linked accounts will offset the balance of your home loan.

For more details on how to apply for an Everyday Offset, make an appointment with a Home Lending Specialist.  Alternatively, call us on 13 2224 and speak to a lending specialist.

Benefits of a Mortgage Interest Saver Account

Mortgage Interest Saver Account is a unique savings account, the balance of which may be offset against eligible home loans.

  • Use your everyday savings to offset your loan balance and reduce your interest^ payments
  • Access your money quickly and conveniently. Minimum withdrawal is $500.
  • Access your funds via  NetBank, ATMs, EFTPOS/EFTPOB, telephone banking and branches.

The MISA is available with the following Home Loan options:

  • Full (100%) offset against a Standard Variable Rate
  • Partial offset (currently 1.5% p.a.) against Fixed Rate, excluding Interest in Advance
  • Full (100%) offset against a 12-Month Discounted Variable Rate
  • Full (100%) offset against a One-Year Guaranteed Rate

Full offset means that interest is not charged on that part of the Home Loan account equal to the balance of the MISA. Partial offset means that a reduced interest rate (currently 1.5% p.a. less than your contracted fixed interest rate) is charged on that part of the Home Loan account equal to the balance of the MISA.

^For the interest offset to apply there must be a minimum of $1,000 in the MISA.

You can activate and use your MISA as soon as your home loan has been funded. Simply log onto NetBank and transfer funds using the MISA BSB number ‘062383’ and your Home Loan number in the Account Number field.  Any borrower to the linked Home Loan account can access your MISA. You can change the level of access, or link the MISA to your Home Loan account at any time.

MISA is not available on Economiser (including 3 Year Special Economiser) home and investment home loans, No Fee Variable Rate home and investment home loans or Viridian Line of Credit.
