Rabobank opening a smsf term deposit requires opening Business High Interest Savings Account. What are the daily limits for transferring funds back out of this account to SMSF fund accounts at other banks?

Hi Nifty,


You won’t be able to transfer funds back out from the term deposit to other SMSF accounts from other banks.


Thanks

Raj
