      Hi Carol,

      Thanks for contacting Finder.

      No, there is no special rate for 6 months term at it is at 2.05%. Kindly take note that the minimum investment amount for the ME Business Term Deposit account is $5,000 so there will be no other rates for deposits between $1,000 to $1,600. All their interest rates applies for investments amounting from $5,000 up to $2,000,000. For deposit amount more than $2,000,000, you need to contact ME Bank for their rates.

      I hope this helps!

    I wish to invest in a term deposit for my SMSF. Do I need to lodge a copy of the Trust Deed when applying for a term deposit? Money would be transferred from my SMSF Business Account at an Australian bank.

      Hi Geoffrey,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      The documents you need to supply when opening an SMSF term deposit will vary depending on whether your SMSF has an individual or corporate trustee structure. For SMSFs with individual trustees you will need to provide a certified copy of the relevant sections of the SMSF trust deed that clearly state:

      -The name of your super fund
      -The individuals listed in the application as the fund members and trustees

      If the trustee of your SMSF is a company, your bank will need certified copies of the sections of the SMSF trust deed that identify the corporate entity as the trustee and the individuals listed as members.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,
