Common questions

How does the Notice Deposit work?

You can manage your deposit in branch, in writing or by telephone.

  • Please note that if you do not already maintain a Business Treasury Cash Management account one is required to be opened when applying for a 35 Day Notice deposit.
  • The deposit operates on a notice basis; interest is paid at the applicable rate until a minimum 35 days notice of withdrawal is instructed.
  • Once notice has been provided, the amount, to which the notice applies, is placed on a 35 Day Fixed Term Deposit. The Fixed Term Deposit interest rate on this amount will be in line with rates for that term and balance applicable on the day. (This could be a negative rate)
  • Upon maturity of the Fixed Term Deposit the balance plus any earned interest will be credited to the Cash Management account from where it can be withdrawn.

Please speak to your Relationship Director for further details.

Can the interest rate change?

Yes, the rate is variable; the 35 Day Notice Deposit rate can increase or decrease. If the rates go down, we'll give you at least 35 days' notice. If they are going up, we'll give you notice either before the change happens or as soon as possible afterwards.

The Fixed Term Deposit rate remains the same for the full 35 day fixed term.

Can I withdraw money?

Yes - subject to a minimum 35 days' notice of withdrawal. Early withdrawals are not permitted. The notice period is effective from the date of receipt of the instruction to withdraw. If we receive your instruction after 12.00 pm or on a non business day, notice will commence on the next working day.

Is there a minimum and maximum deposit and withdrawal amount?

  • There is a 25,000 (or currency equivalent) minimum deposit requirement to open and maintain. This is not applicable to online transactions made through eQ.
  • There is a 250 million (or currency equivalent), maximum deposit per customer.
  • The minimum deposit and withdrawal amount is 25,000 or currency equivalent. This is not applicable to online transactions made through eQ.
