What are the features of the RaboDirect Business Term Deposit?

Excess business capital can still be put to good use with the right term deposit for business. Take a look at the features RaboDirect is offering and compare them with other banks before choosing the one that can help increase your bottom line:

No account fees

RaboDirect charges no establishment or monthly account keeping fees for the Business Term Deposit.

Minimum investment amount

A Business Term Deposit can be opened with $1,000.

Available terms

With RaboDirect you can choose terms from one month up to five years.

Competitive and fixed interest rate

The interest rates with RaboDirect’s Business Term Deposit are competitive and fixed, growing in value when you choose longer terms.

Interest payment frequency

Interest is calculated on the daily balance and you choose how often to receive your payments depending on the length of the term. Less than one year is only paid at maturity, while longer terms can have the interest paid monthly, quarterly or annually. You should note that the interest rates drop slightly when payments are made with more frequency.

Earn bonus interest for your loyalty

When you allow your term deposit to rollover to a new one at maturity a 0.10% loyalty bonus will be added to the prevailing rate.

31-day notice required to access funds before maturity

Any funds withdrawn from the RaboDirect term deposit must be given at least 31 calendar days' notice unless financial hardship applies. If there are less than 31 calendar days remaining, the earliest you may access the funds is at maturity (again, unless financial hardship applies).

Keep earning interest with automatic rollovers

You will be notified by RaboDirect when your maturity date is approaching. If you do not provide them with instruction on whether you will be making a withdrawal, they will automatically roll your account into a new one for the same term length, but at the prevailing interest rate plus the loyalty bonus.

7-day grace period

Starting from the date after maturity you have a seven day grace period where you are permitted to make changes to your term deposit without having to pay a penalty or incur an interest rate reduction.

Your linked account

The RaboDirect Business Term Deposit must be linked to another business account listed in the same name where you can transfer your funds and receive your interest payments.
