FAQs

  Who can apply for a BOS Saver?

Personal customers over the age of 18 who are either an Australian Permanent Resident or Citizen may apply. Business and Trust customers are unable to apply however, we have other options available to suit your needs.

  What do I need to apply online?

If you are an existing Bank of Sydney customer, all you need is your contact details and your Bank of Sydney Transaction Account Number.

If you are a new customer, you will need your contact details, your Australian Identification (Driver’s license or Passport) and TFN on hand.  You do not have to quote your TFN, however if you choose not to quote your TFN or eligible exemption, any interest payments may be taxed at the maximum rate. We recommend you obtain your own independent tax advice.

All applicants will also need existing Account Details (BOS or another Financial Institution) to complete the Linked Account Details Section in the application form.

  Is there a minimum opening balance required for this product?

You are required to deposit a minimum of $1,000 into the account within 10 business days. If the funds are not deposited within this period, the system will automatically close the account. Note only balances between $5,000 to $5,000,000 are eligible to earn interest.

  How will my interest be calculated and paid?

Interest is paid on balances between $5,000 to $5,000,000.

Interest is calculated daily from the date funds are deposited into your account and paid monthly.

  When will my linked Everyday Transaction Account be opened?

Once funds are received into your BOS Saver Account, an Everyday Saver Account will be opened.

We open an Everyday Saver Account with every BOS Saver Account so that you can access your savings at call, as and when you need. You can also link a Visa Debit Card to your Transaction Account to make accessing your funds for day-to-day purchases easy.
