Frequently asked questions

  • 1. What is a 12-month term deposit?

    A 12-month fixed deposit is a savings account with a one-year investment period. The interest you earn depends on the amount of capital you invest, and is quoted as a per annum rate. 

  • 2. What are the benefits of a 12-month fixed deposit?

    A 12-month fixed deposit is an excellent vehicle for medium to long-term savings goals. You can earn higher interest rates with fixed deposit savings than through an instant access or notice deposit account, and reliably forecast how much your investment will earn over the life of the term with a fixed interest rate.

  • 3. Can I get monthly interest on fixed deposit?

    Yes, you can get paid your interest monthly, or compound your interest until the maturity date of the savings period. Interest is transferred into the bank account of your choice.

  • 4. Is interest on a fixed deposit taxable?


  • 5. Are there any tax restrictions on tax free deposits?

    Yes. Amounts exceeding the tax free allowance will be taxed in full.

  • 6. Is there any risk in a fixed deposit?

    The biggest risk of a fixed deposit is that your capital is locked away for the investment period and you will not have access to this until the term has ended without incurring an early withdrawal penalty fee. 

  • 7. What is the minimum amount for fixed deposit?

    The minimum amount required to open an Investec 12-month fixed deposit is R100,000.
