Keep dipping into your savings? Notice Saver can take temptation out of the equation. Earn a good rate of return on your savings, but instead of instant access, you have to give notice to make a withdrawal. This is reaching your savings goals faster.
Key features & benefits
No account management or transaction fees.
Add money whenever you like and leave it in your account for as long as you like.
Make a withdrawal by giving either 32 or 90 days' notice.
Rates of return are subject to change.
Notice Saver is a fund within a Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE), which could have tax advantages for you. Usually you’d pay your regular income tax on interest earned on savings accounts, which could be up to 39%. With a PIE, the maximum tax you’ll pay on the returns you earn is 28% – meaning you could keep more of your return in your pocket.
Notice period and withdrawals
To give notice, you can log in to internet banking or our mobile app, and set up a transfer. You can choose any available amount to transfer and you can have multiple transfers on the go. You'll also earn the Notice Saver rate of return right until your money leaves the account. Alternatively, you can also give us a call.
Once you’ve given notice, you’ll need to wait either 32 or 90 days, depending on which option you chose when you opened your account.
Your nominated account
When you make a withdrawal you can take out all of your money, or just some of it. When your funds are transferred, they go into a specified account that you set up at the time your Notice Saver is opened. This can be any New Zealand bank account. If you want to change your nominated account and to help protect your funds, please complete a Notice Saver account change advice (PDF 31.3 KB).
Withdrawing money early
When you request an immediate withdrawal of part or all of your money from Notice Saver without giving the required notice, you'll be charged an immediate withdrawal charge. The amount of the charge varies depending on the amount being withdrawn, the current rate of return for your Notice Saver and the length of the required notice period.
