Can I set up a term deposit for a family trust with a corporate trustee, if so, how can I go about setting it up? Also, will it be eligible for the Australian Government guarantee? Thanks

Hi Alka,

Thankyou for your question.

Yes, you can set up a term deposit for a family trust with a corporate trustee through Judo Bank. To set it up, you would need to follow the steps mentioned in the above guide.

As for eligibility for the Australian Government guarantee, business term deposits with Judo Bank are typically covered by the Financial Claims Scheme. This means that in the unlikely event that something were to happen to Judo Bank, your deposit up to $250,000 is protected. This coverage should extend to term deposits held in the name of a family trust with a corporate trustee, but it’s always a good idea to double-check with Judo Bank to ensure your specific trust structure qualifies for the guarantee.

I hope this helps.

Hi Janetta, this account is for businesses only, however Judo Bank does offer a separate SMSF Term Deposit for SMSF customers.
