Benefits of a notice deposit account
Like savings accounts, notice deposit accounts are a place to save money, but given that they require advance notice before money can be withdrawn, they typically offer more competitive rates than the average savings account. When opening a Notice Deposit investment, you select the notice period (anywhere from 32–120 days) and the percentage of your deposit that you would require access to (0%-50%), based on your unique business requirements. There are a number of advantages that make a notice deposit account appealing, including guaranteed returns, peace of mind, and zero monthly fees – while reaping the benefits of competitive interest rates.
Notice and access tailored to you
Choose a notice period that suits you. Service your cash flow needs by also customising your desired level of access and deposit amount. Plan ahead and be rewarded.
Benefit from the best rates
Receive a prime-linked return (SmartRate Plus) or an interest rate that approximates the average of the top 5 qualifying¹ money market funds’ published rates (Business Top5) without the inconvenience or cost of switching between funds. Improve your notice deposit rates by increasing your notice period or decreasing your percentage access and have the potential to earn additional interest when you don’t place notice.
Peace of mind
Across the entire range of products, your deposits are capital guaranteed with no monthly fees to erode your earnings. Choose to open a stand-alone online electronic account, linked to your investment account for a low monthly fee and a per-transaction charge.
