Back to Products

Overview

An Everyday Offset is a feature of the Complete Access account, offering the same flexibility of an everyday transaction account with the superior access options Australia's largest banking network provides. It is linked to an eligible home loan account with the ability to have one or more offsetting accounts within a single arrangement. The balance of the Everyday Offset is fully offset against the home loan account, so that interest is not charged on that part of the Home Loan account equal to the balance of the Everyday Offset.

 

Complete Access with Everyday Offset is designed for customers who want the option of branch access in addition to electronic services while receiving 100% offset of the balance against the Home Loan.
