      Hi Dennis,

      Thanks for getting in touch! The 2.5% interest is only set and computed on the maturity date or 9 months after your term deposit and the final computation will be given by NAB. To obtain more information on this, we suggest contacting NAB directly.

      Hope this clarifies!

    Hi. In case a foreigner (non-resident) , can I apply for Term Deposit account in Australian banks. And how is taxable rate that have to pay for interest amount ? Tks.

      Hi MinD,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      Most banks will let non-residents open a term deposit even though you’re not a resident of Australia. However, not supplying a Tax File Number could trigger an automatic tax with-holding of approximately 48%, so if the applicant doesn’t have a TFN, it may not be tax-effective to open a term deposit in Australia. Banks should also have an exemption code that they can put in their system to override this for non-residents so that they’re taxed at the foreign resident marginal tax rates instead.

      For more information please check out this page

      Hope this information helps

    Hi, I was wondering which formula does NAB use to calculate their interest for term deposits? Simple or compound interest?

    Simple interest = amount invested x rate % per annum x number of days/365
    Compound interest = amount invested (1 + rate per annum/payment freq )^ (payment freq x number of days/365

      Hi A,

      Thanks for your question.

      Term deposits generally use compounding interest.

      Kindly note that the term deposit calculator on our page doesn’t take into account any loyalty bonuses. We also display the interest rate that is paid at maturity and assume base rate.

    We have $110,000 to invest or deposit what is the maximum interest we can get with your bank

      Hi Thi,

      Thanks for your question.

      Just to confirm, we are an Australian comparison website and as such, provide general advice only. Regarding the maximum interest you can get with your deposit, in a term deposit the interest rate varies between terms. For example, with the NAB Term Deposit, if you keep your funds locked away for a 1 month term, you will receive 1.50% interest on your balance. If you keep your funds locked away for a 24 month term deposit, you will receive 3.10% interest on your balance.

      Currently, NAB offer 3.20% interest rate on a 36 month term deposit – the highest available on this product.
