How do I apply for the ANZ Premium Cash Management Account?

If you do decide that this is the right account to manage your investment funds from, click on “Go to Site” to be directed to the online application. If you prefer, you can also apply in person at a local ANZ branch, just make sure that you meet the eligibility requirements before getting started:

  • Minimum age. Applicants for this account can be as young as 16 years of age.
  • Residency requirements. You must have a residential address in Australia in order to apply for this account. If you are applying from overseas, there is a special application form that you can use for non-residents.
  • Depository requirements. ANZ requires a minimum opening balance of at least $10,000 before activating the account. After that, the ongoing balance requirement is $1,000.

It should take about 10 minutes to complete the application, which will go even faster if you have the following documentation available:

  • Tax file number. A tax file number (TFN) or exemption code provided on interest earning accounts assures that the withholding rate on your earned interest is correct. It is not mandatory to fill in this section of the application, but if you don’t ANZ will withhold tax at the highest marginal rate.
  • Identification. Your driver’s licence, passport, or Medicare card will contain information that can be used by ANZ to confirm your identity. New customers may need to visit a branch in order to complete this step in the process.

After submitting your application online, it will be reviewed by ANZ and so long as your identity can be confirmed and you meet the other eligibility requirements, the account will be activated within two business days. At this point your ANZ access card will be issued in order to enable you to make withdrawals and purchases from the account.
