The Detail

Conditions, fees and charges apply. Interest rates (including interest tiers, where applicable) are subject to change.

This information is for existing account holders only. The information on our website is prepared without taking into account your personal objectives, circumstances or needs. Before making a decision, it’s best to read the Terms and Conditions and consider if a product is right for you:

Transaction, Savings and Investment Accounts: Accounts no longer offered - Banking services Terms and Conditions and General Information and Transaction, Savings and Investment Accounts: Accounts no longer offered - Fees and charges and How to minimise them.

You should keep a copy of the Terms and Conditions for your records and you can also request a paper copy at a branch. If you need help, ask at any branch or please call 13 22 66, Monday to Saturday, 8am – 8pm (EST).

^ We do not calculate interest on an account if the account is linked to a loan account under an interest offset facility. The interest offset facility may be a “loan offset” (partial interest offset) or a “mortgage equaliser” (full interest offset). Please refer to the Transaction, Savings and Investment Accounts: Accounts no longer offered terms and conditions and general information booklet for more information on interest offset facilities.


To avoid being charged interest on any unarranged debt, you should always try to keep a positive balance in your deposit accounts. If your account becomes overdrawn without arrangement, debit interest will be charged to that account. It will be calculated daily on the debit balance (and deducted on the last business day of each month) using the then current Unarranged Lending Rate (ULR) until the account balance is positive again. The current unarranged lending rate is available by contacting us on 13 22 66 (or +61 2 9155 7800 if calling from outside of Australia) or visiting www.bankofmelbourne.com.au.
