How does a Business Term Deposit work?

 

A safe investment

Avoid market fluctuations by earning a fixed interest rate on your investment, while avoiding the temptation to dip into your savings.

Your choice of terms

Pick a fixed term that matches your business cycle, from 1 month to 5 years. And choose how you want your interest to be paid.

Options at maturity

At the end of the term, choose whether to withdraw some or all of the funds or reinvest them for another term at the latest rate.

Flexibility if needed

If you really need your funds and give us enough notice, early withdrawal may be possible. But rate adjustments and reduced returns may apply.3


How do I manage my Business Term Deposit online?

  • Opt-in to get notified via email and your Online Banking Message Centre when your Term Deposit is maturing.
  • You can set up renewal or withdrawal instructions in advance online, then update them whenever you want to.
  • Choose a new term for all or some of your funds. Or transfer funds into your eligible everyday account.
  • Do it all in Online Banking or the Westpac App if you’re eligible, without having to visit a branch. 5
