6 NAB 100% Offset arrangement and NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement

Am I eligible for a NAB 100% Offset arrangement, and if so, how do I apply?

NAB 100% Offset arrangement

How will a NAB 100% Offset arrangement change my deposit account?

6.1 You may apply to NAB to participate in the NAB 100% Offset arrangement. NAB may accept or reject your application at its discretion.

6.2 The NAB 100% Offset arrangement is only available on certain deposit and loan accounts specified by NAB. Unless NAB otherwise agrees, only 1 loan and 1 deposit account can be linked to the NAB 100% Offset arrangement.

6.3 An offset arrangement may not link a loan account with a deposit account which includes a name or names other than the name(s) in which the loan account is held.

6.4 While you have an offset arrangement, the following relevant terms override the provisions relating to the calculation and payment of interest applying to:

  1. any linked deposit account, except while this account has a debit balance; and
  2. your linked loan account, except if the credit contract relating to the linked loan account contains specific provisions relating to the calculation and payment of interest while you have an offset arrangement. If the exception applies, then those specific provisions, in addition to others, apply in respect of your linked loan account while you have an offset arrangement.

How will an offset arrangement change my deposit account?

6.5 While you have an offset arrangement, any linked deposit account will not earn any interest even if the credit balance of your account exceeds, or if there is more than one linked deposit account, the total credit balances of those accounts exceed, the unpaid balance of your linked loan account.

6.6 You or NAB may end the offset arrangement by giving 7 days' notice to the other. However, if you default under your linked loan account, NAB may end the offset arrangement immediately by giving you a notice to this effect.

6.7 It is your responsibility to monitor the credit balance of the linked deposit account, or if there is more than one linked deposit account, the total credit balances of those accounts, as against the unpaid balance of your linked loan account to achieve the best results for you under the offset arrangement.

How will NAB 100% Offset change my loan account?

6.8 The daily interest charges which would otherwise be payable on a day under your linked loan account will be calculated by deducting the credit balance of the linked deposit account from the unpaid balance of your linked loan account at the end of the day and then applying the daily rate (being the annual percentage rate divided by 365) to the result.

6.9 If the credit balance of the linked deposit account exceeds the unpaid balance of your linked loan account at the end of a day, no interest will be charged under the loan for that day.

NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement

Am I eligible for a NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement, and if so, how do I apply?

6.10 NAB offers the NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement for certain types of accounts if you have a NAB Portfolio Facility or a NAB Private Portfolio Facility (the 'credit contract'). NAB may accept or reject your application to participate in the offset arrangement at its discretion. Contact NAB to find out whether the arrangement is available and to request to participate in it.

6.11 If you wish to apply to enter into a NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement, you must nominate one account, and may nominate up to 10 accounts, with credit balances including sub accounts under the credit contract with credit balances ('credit balance accounts') to be linked to one or more nominated sub accounts with an unpaid balance under the credit contract ('nominated loan account'). This is provided that:

(a) a variable interest rate applies to the nominated loan account;

(b) the accountholder of the credit balance account is the accountholder of the nominated loan account but, for the avoidance of doubt, an offset arrangement may not link a nominated load account with any credit balance account which includes a name or names other than the name in which the nominated loant account is held;

(c) a credit balance account may only be linked to one nominated loan account at a time; and

(d) each nominated loan account and its linked credit balance accounts together constitute an 'offset arrangement'.

How will a NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement change my accounts?

6.12 While you have a NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement, the following terms and conditions override the provisions relating to the calculation and payment of:

(a) interest on any credit balance account under an offset arrangement (except while it has an unpaid balance); and

(b) interest charges on the unpaid balance of any nominated loan account, except if the credit contract contains specific provisions relating to the calculation of interest while you have an offset arrangement. If the exception applies, then those specific provisions, in additon to others, apply in respect of your nominated loan account while you have an offset arrangement.

6.13 NAB calculates the daily interest charges on the unpaid balance of a nominated loan account under a NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement by:

(a) deducting the credit balance of the credit balance account, or total credit balance if there is more than one credit balance account, from the unpaid balance of the nominated loan account; and

(b) applying the daily interest rate (being the interest rate divided by 365) to the result.

If the total of the credit balance of the credit balance account exceeds the balance owing on the nominated loan account, then no interest charges are payable for that day.

6.14 While you have any NAB Portfolio 100% Offset arrangement, any credit balance account under the offset arrangement will not earn interest even if the credit balance of that account exceeds, or if there is more than one such account, the total credit balances of those accounts exceeds, the unpaid balance of hte nominated loan account under that offset arrangement.

6.15 If NAB agrees to your request to participate in a NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement, then:

(a) you may request to vary your participation in an arrangement at any time; and

(b) you or NAB may cancel your participation by giving 7 days' notice to the other.

6.16 If you default under the credit contract, NAB may cancel your participation immediately on giving you notice. Any NAB Portfolio Facility 100% Offset arrangement:

(a) may be terminated if you terminate the credit contract; and

(b) is immediately terminated if the credit contract is cancelled.

6.17 It is your responsibility to monitor the credit balance account as against the unpaid balance of your nominated load account to achieve the best results of the offset arrangement for you.

    2. notifying any NAB branch either in person or by phone.
  2. If you advise NAB by phone, your written confirmation may be required.
  3. NAB may charge a fee for stopping payment on a cheque, the amount and nature of which are detailed in NAB's brochure 'A Guide to Fees and Charges – Personal Banking Fees'.

7.1.3 Dishonouring cheques

Your cheque may (at NAB's discretion) be returned unpaid or 'dishonoured' in certain circumstances, such as where:

  1. there are not enough available funds in your account or your overdraft limit is not enough to cover the cheque;
  2. there is some irregularity or omission with your cheque, for example your cheque is unsigned, is more than 15 months old, has a date that has not yet arrived or has been materially altered (e.g. by a change for the amount originally stated on it) and you have not signed the alteration;
  3. you have instructed NAB to stop payment of your cheque; or
  4. NAB has received notice of your mental incapacity or of your death.

7.1.4 Crossing Cheques

  1. A cheque with two parallel lines across it, with or without the words 'not negotiable' written between them, is a crossed cheque. When you cross a cheque, you are telling the bank that the cheque must be paid into an account with a financial institution and not cashed. If NAB does cash the cheque, it may be liable for any loss suffered by the true owner.
  2. A crossing may be added by you when you make a cheque or by any person who obtains possession of your cheque.

7.1.5 'Not Negotiable' cheques

The words 'not negotiable' between two parallel lines across the face of a cheque mean that, where the cheque is transferred, the person who obtains the cheque has no greater rights than the person who transferred it to him or her.

For example, your cheque might be stolen and then passed on by the thief to another person. That person might then obtain payment of the cheque. In this case, if the cheque was crossed and marked 'not negotiable', the person from whom the cheque is stolen might recover the amount of the cheque from the person who obtains payment of the cheque, even though the person who has obtained payment may not have done anything wrong.

7.1.6 'Account payee only' cheques

  1. If you write the words 'account payee only' on a cheque, you are warning the bank with which the cheque is deposited that the cheque should be paid only to the person named in the cheque as payee.
  2. The words 'account payee only' do not prevent the transfer of a cheque.

7.1.7 'Or bearer' or 'order' cheques

  1. The words 'or bearer' (except where the cheque is crossed), mean that a bank may pay the cheque to whomever is in possession of the cheque, not only the person named on the cheque, even if that person found or stole it, unless NAB has reason to suspect that the cheque might have fallen into the wrong hands. If you delete these words, the cheque becomes an 'order' cheque.
  2. If the cheque is an 'order' cheque, then (except in cases where the cheque is crossed and must therefore be collected by a bank) the bank on which the cheque is drawn should only pay it:
    1. to the named payee; or
    2. to any other person to whom the named payee, by endorsing the cheque on the reverse side, has ordered it to be paid.

7.1.8 Unauthorised alteration of your cheques

  1. When you write a cheque, you should take care to reduce the opportunity for forgery and fraud. You have a duty to complete the cheque so as not to mislead NAB or make it easy for someone else to alter your cheque.
  2. Ways to assist you to correctly complete a cheque are:
    1. do not leave gaps between the words or figures;
    2. begin the amount in words as close as possible to the left hand side;
    3. begin the amount in figures as close as possible to the dollar sign ($);
    4. never write a cheque in pencil or ink that can be rubbed out;
    5. never sign a cheque before it is used or filled out; and
    6. always write the amount of the cheque in words as well as figures, because words are harder to alter without your authority.

7.1.9 When is a cheque 'cleared'?

  1. You should allow a minimum of 3 banking days for a cheque that is deposited into your account to clear, after which time the funds are available to you.
  2. Normally you will not be able to withdraw the value of a cheque you deposit until the cheque is cleared, even though your account will be immediately credited with the proceeds of the cheque. This rule also applies to cheques made payable to 'cash'.
  3. If a cheque you have deposited is dishonoured NAB will advise you. NAB will also reduce the balance of your account by the amount of the cheque already credited.

7.1.10 Special clearance

You can arrange for a cheque to be cleared in less than the usual time by requesting a special clearance. Special Clearance fees are detailed in NAB's brochure 'A Guide to Fees and Charges – Personal Banking Fees'.

7.1.11 Third Party cheques

If you present a cheque which is payable to someone else or it appears to belong to someone else (third party cheque), NAB may, in its discretion, refuse to accept that cheque for deposit or refuse to cash it or may require you to comply with some conditions before it will accept that cheque for deposit or cash it.

7.1.12 Bank cheques

Bank cheques are cheques instructing payment from the bank itself rather than from a customer's account. They are designed to provide an alternative to carrying large amounts of cash when a personal cheque is not acceptable.

Bank cheques are usually requested because of the higher likelihood that they will be paid. However bank cheques should not be regarded as equivalent to cash.

Bank cheques can be purchased by NAB and non-NAB customers and a fee is charged. A bank may dishonour a bank cheque if:

  1. the bank cheque is forged or counterfeit;
  2. the bank cheque has been fraudulently and materially altered;
  3. a fraud or other crime has been committed;
  4. the bank is told the bank cheque has been lost or stolen;
  5. there is a court order restraining the bank from paying a bank cheque;
  6. the bank has not received payment or value for the issue of the bank cheque; or
  7. a bank cheque is presented by a person who is not entitled to the cheque proceeds.

If a bank cheque is lost or stolen, NAB will, on certain conditions provide a replacement cheque for a fee.

7.2 Direct Debits

You may make regular payments to a third party (Debit User), by authorising the Debit User to debit your account with NAB. For eligible accounts refer to the Product Comparison Table.

7.2.1 General provisions

  1. The Debit User will provide you with their direct debit request agreement. Only Debit Users approved by a financial institution can make these arrangements on your behalf.
  2. The Debit User request may provide for the debiting of your account with any amount charged by the Debit User. You may, however, be able to limit the amount or ask that the charging be delayed until after the issuing of a billing advice to you. These arrangements are between you and the Debit User.

7.2.2 Disputed Debits

  1. You must notify NAB as soon as possible if you suspect or believe that an amount debited to your account was unauthorised or otherwise irregular. Either visit your branch or call a Customer Service Representative on 13 BANK (13 22 65) from 8am-7pm Mon-Fri, or 9am-6pm on weekends (AEST/AEDT) , Saturday and Sunday.

    NAB will promptly process your instruction.

  2. If you lodge a written claim with NAB regarding a disputed amount, you should receive a response within 7 banking days.
  3. NAB suggests you also contact the Debit User. This may be especially helpful if you believe that an incorrect amount has been debited to your account.

7.2.3 Cancellation of direct debit authority

  1. You may cancel your direct debit arrangements with a Debit User by calling NAB on 13 BANK (13 22 65) or visiting your branch and completing a cancellation request. If you advise NAB by phone, your written confirmation may also be required.

    NAB will promptly process your instruction and stop further debits to your account. NAB will advise the Debit User of your request to cancel the authority. NAB suggests you also contact the Debit User. This may be especially helpful when resolving complaints about incorrect charges.

  2. To arrange for a direct debit by the Debit User to be resumed on your account, you will need to contact the Debit User and you will also need to contact NAB and cancel the stop payment.

7.2.4 Non-payments

  1. If there are insufficient cleared funds in your account to meet a direct debit payment, NAB may dishonour or pay the debit at its discretion. This may result in your account being overdrawn. In this situation, you may be charged default interest in accordance with clause 5.
  2. You must monitor your accounts to ensure that you have sufficient funds to meet your direct debit arrangements. NAB will not notify you if a debit is dishonoured or otherwise not made.

7.2.5 Multiple authorities

  1. If you have more than 1 direct debit arrangement with a Debit User on your account and you cancel 1 arrangement, this will automatically stop all debits from your account by that Debit User.
  2. To arrange for other direct debits to continue on your account, you will need to contact the Debit User. You will then need to contact NAB and cancel the stop payment to allow the Debit User to continue to debit your account.

7.3 You must check your statements

Without limiting any part of these terms and conditions, you must promptly review your statement of account to check for and tell NAB of any transaction recorded on your statement that you suspect for any reason you did not authorise or for which the information recorded is incorrect. Failure to promptly report unauthorised transactions may increase your liability.

7.4 Indemnity

In the absence of a breach of any obligation owed to you, NAB will not be liable for any loss that you incur:

  1. if NAB refuses to allow payment of a cheque or direct debit in good faith in the ordinary course of business; or
  2. if a stop payment request is given too late to enable payment to be stopped; or
  3. if NAB suffers any loss as a result of acting on your instructions in relation to a cheque or direct debit (such as processing a request to cancel a direct debit arrangement or stopping payment on a cheque or direct debit); or
  4. as a result of you breaching any obligation you have in this clause.

Where NAB pays funds or suffers any loss under this clause, you must indemnify NAB. NAB will debit your account for the relevant amount.

8 How is the operation of the account governed?

8.1 Each accountholder is authorised to operate the account alone unless an authority is provided to NAB which specifies who is authorised to operate the account and whether they may do so alone or jointly.

  1. give instructions in relation to cheques, withdrawals, periodical payment/debit authorities and, where nominated by the accountholder, electronic NAB services;
  2. overdraw the account(s) to any extent permitted by NAB (NAB will treat casual overdrafts as applications for credit);

8.3 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 8.1, NAB may elect not to follow any instructions given under the authority if:

  1. it is not satisfied that the person giving the instruction has authority (for example, if NAB is not satisfied that the signature on the instruction matches the specimen signature held);
  2. in its opinion, the instructions are not clear;
  3. NAB cannot authenticate or validate any information or documents relating to the account or service, a person who is authorised to transact on it, or the transaction; or
  4. NAB is notified of a dispute between joint accountholders (in which case NAB may require all joint account holders or directors to sign any authority to operate this account).

8.4 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 8.1, NAB may, by giving notice, override the authority and require that all or specific future transactions must be authorised by all accountholders

8.5 Any authority provided to NAB under clause 8.1 does not prevent NAB from complying with other valid accountholder instructions.

8.6 In relation to transactions to or from the account, you authorise NAB to disclose and collect information (including personal information) to and from other financial institutions, to the extent NAB considers this reasonably necessary.

9 What conditions apply to joint accounts?

9.1 If there are 2 or more of you, you will be treated as holding the account jointly and NAB may accept for credit to your account any cheque, payment order or bill of exchange that is not payable to all of you. This means that each accountholder has the right to all of the balance of the account, jointly with the other accountholders.

9.2 If any of you die, the account will be treated as the account of the survivor or survivors jointly.

9.3 Unless any of you request otherwise, NAB statements and notices (including notification of any variation to these terms and conditions) will be forwarded to the address of the first of you named on your account. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, you will all be deemed to have received any NAB statements and notices forwarded in accordance with the terms and conditions in this booklet. If we are legally obliged to, we will send statements and notices for each NAB FlexiPlus Mortgage account and each NAB Portfolio Facility/NAB Private Portfolio Facility sub account to each accountholder.

9.4 A joint accountholder may only make a withdrawal on the terms of any authority to operate on the account. If NAB is notified of a dispute between joint accountholders, NAB may require all joint accountholders to sign any authority to operate the account.

9.5 The liability of accountholders under an account held in joint names is joint and several. This means each and all of the accountholders are liable for the whole of any debit balance on the account.

9.6 Subject to any authority provided under clause 8.1, any one of the joint accountholders is authorised to open additional joint accounts or take out additional joint services.

10 NAB's right to combine or set-off accounts

NAB can combine or set-off the balance of 2 or more of any type of accounts, credit facilities or other products held by the accountholder with NAB, even if they are held at different branches or in joint names. This may happen when one of the accountholder's accounts is overdrawn or is in debit and another is in credit. For example, the credit balance in 1 account can be used to repay the debit balance in another account. NAB will promptly inform you if it has exercised this right and NAB need not give you notice in advance. The accountholder does not have a right of combination or set-off unless NAB has agreed.

11 Inactive accounts

If you have not operated your account for seven years, (for example, by making deposits or withdrawals), the account may be closed and the balance transferred to the Commonwealth Government as unclaimed money. NAB will notify you at your last known address at least 30 days before any such variation takes effect.

  1. transactions generated by use of an additional NAB Visa Debit card and card details until you have made the request; and

Use of NAB Visa Debit card and card details

19.13 A NAB Visa Debit card may be honoured by financial institutions and merchants displaying a sign or card promotional material that identifies the Visa card scheme. This does not mean that all goods and services available at those premises may be purchased by use of a NAB Visa Debit card.

19.14 You may be able to use your NAB Visa Debit card details through an electronic banking facility. This includes when the NAB Visa Debit card details are used at a merchant by mail, telephone order or through the Internet to pay for goods or services. In this instance:

  1. use of your NAB Visa Debit card details through an electronic banking facility will be subject to the terms and conditions of the electronic banking facility; and
  2. where the terms and conditions of Part C conflicts with those of the electronic banking facility's terms and conditions, the electronic banking facility terms and conditions will prevail.

19.15 You should ensure that the transaction amount is correct before:

  • you sign vouchers or transaction records given to you by merchants or a financial institution; and
  • you enter your PIN or other identifying number or password at an electronic banking facility.

NAB relies on your signature on a voucher or transaction record or the entry of your PIN as authority to debit the amount shown.

19.16 NAB is not responsible for goods or services supplied to a cardholder, and any complaint must be resolved with the merchant. In some circumstances NAB may be able to lodge a claim to request a refund for you under the card scheme's rules for disputed transactions. Details about chargeback rights and the procedures for disputing transactions are described in clause 25.

19.17 A NAB Visa Debit card transaction cannot be changed. It is an unchangeable order by you to NAB to process the transaction. You may not request NAB to alter or stop payment on the transaction. To cancel periodical debits authorised to be made by your NAB Visa Debit card you must contact the merchant and give directions to cancel them.

19.18 Your NAB Visa Debit card must not be used for any unlawful purpose, including the purchase of goods or services, prohibited by any law in the cardholder's jurisdiction.

19.19 NAB may temporarily block the use of your NAB Visa Debit card where it has reason to suspect inappropriate, unauthorised or unlawful activity on your NAB Visa Debit card. NAB will endeavour to contact you in this event.

19.20 You are encouraged to maintain a record of any regular payment arrangement you elect to enter into with a merchant.

A regular payment arrangement includes regular direct debits, regular recurring payments and instalment payments from a debit card. Instalment payments are regular payments over a set period of time.

To either change or cancel any regular payment arrangement you should contact the merchant at least 15 days prior to the next scheduled payment. Until you attempt to cancel the regular payment arrangement NAB must accept the merchant's transaction. If possible you should retain a copy of your change/cancellation request. If the merchant fails to act in accordance with these instructions you may have the rights to a dispute.

20 Limits on use of your NAB Visa Debit card and card details

20.1 A NAB Visa Debit card may not be accepted unless it carries your signature and is used during the validity-period shown on your card.

20.2 The available balance of your NAB Visa Debit account will be reduced by the amount of:

  1. any transaction for which a merchant seeks authorisation even if the transaction is not completed at the time of the authorisation. This authorisation is for the purpose of establishing that there are sufficient funds available in your NAB Visa Debit account for the transaction. This authorisation may be completed for a transaction that occurs at a later time such as hotel accommodation; and
  2. any debit to your NAB Visa Debit account under clause 21.1 except to the extent that the relevant transaction has already led to a reduction in the amount of available balance.

20.3 All purchases and cash withdrawals made using a NAB Visa Debit card through the Visa card scheme are limited to the available balance of your NAB Visa Debit account.

20.4 A cash withdrawal cannot be made using card details or card at a contactless reader.

20.5 Transaction limits apply to the use of a card details or a card to make a purchase at a contactless reader. NAB will notify you of any such limit if your card is capable of making contactless purchases.

21 Processing of transactions by NAB

21.1 Your NAB Visa Debit account will be debited with, and you agree to pay to NAB:

  1. each purchase;
  2. each cash withdrawal; and
  3. fees and charges

payable under the terms and conditions in Part C.

21.2 In the absence of evidence to the contrary:

  1. the amount shown on a sales voucher or any other evidence of a purchase is sufficient evidence of the purchase; and
  2. the amount shown on a cash withdrawal voucher, receipt or any other evidence of a cash withdrawal is sufficient evidence of the cash withdrawal; and
  3. the above applies regardless of whether the voucher or other evidence is signed by you.

22 NAB may assign any date it considers appropriate to a debit or credit to your NAB Visa Debit account or may adjust any debit or credit for the purposes of correction.

23 Statements and currency conversion

23.1 NAB will give you a statement for your NAB Visa Debit account as set out in Part A.

23.2 If your NAB Visa Debit card or card details are used to make transactions in a foreign currency, the way amounts are converted to Australian dollars for listing on your statement is set out below:

  1. Purchases, cash withdrawals, refunds and any other charges, incurred in currencies other than Australian dollars are converted to Australian dollars (directly from United States, Canadian, New Zealand and Singapore dollars, pound sterling, euros and Japanese yen or, if in a currency other than these currencies, first to United States dollars) as at the dates they are processed by Visa International using exchange rates determined by them. The exchange rates used by Visa International to convert a foreign currency transaction to Australian dollars are wholesale market rates selected by Visa International from within a range of wholesale rates or the government–mandated rate, in effect 1 day prior to the Visa International Central Processing Date. The converted Australian dollar amount appears on your statement as the transaction amount.
  2. A NAB Foreign Currency Transaction Fee is charged to your NAB Visa Debit account for purchases and cash withdrawals and calculated on the converted AUD transaction amount shown on your statement. The NAB Foreign Currency Transaction Fee includes a fee charged by Visa to NAB (and on charged by NAB to you).

(Note: Refunds incurred in currencies other than Australian dollars are converted to Australian dollars as at the date they are processed by Visa International using exchange rates determined by them. This often results in the refund being converted using an exchange rate different from the one used to convert the original purchase or cash withdrawal.)

24 Lost/stolen cards

24.1 Notification procedure

If a NAB Visa Debit card or card details is lost or stolen you must immediately notify NAB using the telephone number referred to in the 'Lost/Stolen Cards/Compromised Personal Identification Numbers (PINs)' details under Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet, or any other means NAB makes available to you. Where requested, you must give NAB all the information you have about how the loss occurred.

24.2 Your liability

You remain liable for any cash withdrawal or purchase made by any other person before you notify NAB of the loss or theft up to a maximum of:

  1. in relation to all the uses of the NAB Visa Debit card through an electronic banking facility – the amount determined under the terms and conditions for the electronic banking facility (if any);
  2. in relation to all other uses of the NAB Visa Debit card, a total amount of $150.

24.3 Despite notifying NAB of an event described in clause 24.1, you remain liable for any cash withdrawal or purchase made by you.

24.4 Emergency card replacement

If your NAB Visa Debit card is lost or stolen while you are overseas, you may request a NAB Visa Debit Emergency Card for use until your permanent replacement card is received. You remain liable and responsible for the proper use of the NAB Visa Debit Emergency Card and any transactions made using the NAB Visa Debit Emergency Card or its card details.

24.5 New card details to your Merchants

If your NAB Visa Debit card details are changed i.e as a result of a lost or stolen card you must request the merchant to change the details of your existing regular payment arrangement to ensure arrangements continue. If you fail to undertake this activity your regular payment arrangement either may not be honoured by NAB or the merchant may stop providing the goods and/services.

25 Disputed transactions

25.1 A disputed transaction may include:

  1. an unauthorised NAB Visa Debit card transaction – a transaction which you believe was not authorised by use of your NAB Visa Debit card or card details.
  2. a general dispute – a transaction which you wish to dispute. This may include a transaction which has been processed to your NAB Visa Debit card more than once, or a transaction which was authorised by the use of your NAB Visa Debit card which you wish to dispute.

Despite notifying NAB of a disputed transaction you remain liable for any cash withdrawal or purchase made by using your NAB Visa Debit card.

25.2 Notification procedure for disputed transactions

You should immediately notify NAB of any disputed transaction.

NAB recommends that you promptly read each statement carefully as soon as you receive it. If applicable you may also wish to check your current transaction history via NAB Internet Banking or NAB Telephone Banking.

Use the telephone number printed on your statement or on the back of your NAB Visa Debit card to report the disputed transaction. You must give NAB any information you have about how the disputed transaction occurred. NAB may require you to confirm details in writing.

25.3 Chargeback rights

The Visa card scheme has a dispute resolution process that is contained in its operating rules. This process sets out specific circumstances and timeframes in which a member of the scheme (e.g. a financial institution) can claim a refund in connection with a disputed transaction on your behalf. This is referred to as a 'chargeback right'.

This 'chargeback right' does not apply to transactions at EFTPOS terminals accessing your nominated account using the 'savings' or 'cheque' option.

NAB's ability to investigate any disputed transaction on your NAB Visa Debit card, and subsequently process a chargeback is restricted by the time limits imposed under the operating rules for the Visa card scheme.

While your dispute is being investigated by NAB, the value of the disputed transaction will be withheld against your NAB Visa Debit account until the dispute is resolved.

25.4 Timeframes for notifying NAB

The ability of NAB to dispute a transaction on your behalf (where a chargeback right exists) may be lost if you do not notify NAB within the required timeframes.

For this reason, it is in your interest to report any disputed transaction to NAB immediately and certainly no later than 75 days after the date of transaction on your receipt.

Where it can be shown that you have unreasonably delayed notifying NAB, you may be liable for the loss on any disputed transaction.

25.5 Timeframes for NAB to process a chargeback right where a chargeback right exists

NAB will process a chargeback for you when you have notified NAB of the disputed transaction within the required time frame, as described in clause 25.4.

The timeframes for NAB to process a chargeback vary between 75 days and 120 days depending on the type of disputed transaction.

NAB will not accept a refusal of a chargeback by a merchant's financial institution unless it is consistent with the relevant Visa card scheme rules.

25.6 Electronic transactions

If the ePayments Code is applicable to a disputed transaction, the timeframes as specified in clause 25.4 may not apply in certain circumstances.

The procedures for resolving disputed electronic transactions are set out in the terms and conditions of the electronic banking facility.

26 Cancellation of your card

26.1 Cancellation by NAB

NAB may cancel your NAB Visa Debit card at any time without notice. Examples of where NAB may do this include, where you have reported a fraudulent transaction using your card or card details, where the account is inactive, or where NAB reasonably believes that the continued use of your card may cause loss to NAB or you. These examples are for guidance only and do not limit NAB's ability to cancel your card for another reason.

The NAB Visa Debit card or card details may not be used after it is cancelled or your NAB Visa Debit account is closed. When NAB gives you notice of the cancellation you must destroy or return the NAB Visa Debit card to NAB and to take reasonable steps to prevent your card details from being used.

26.2 Cancellation by you

You may cancel your NAB Visa Debit card if you:

  1. notify NAB using a notice method set out in clause 13, requesting that the NAB Visa Debit card be cancelled.
  2. destroy or return your current NAB Visa Debit card to NAB and take reasonable steps to prevent your card details from being used.

You will remain liable for any transactions using your NAB Visa Debit card or NAB Visa Debit card details prior to your NAB Visa Debit card or NAB Visa Debit account being closed. NAB may seek to recover these funds from you.

NAB may refuse to authorise any transactions on your NAB Visa Debit card made after receiving your request to cancel your NAB Visa Debit card.

26.3 Regular payment arrangements (including direct debits)

  1. If your NAB Visa Debit card is cancelled under clause 26.2, you must cancel any direct debits authorised using your NAB Visa Debit card details.
  2. If you elect to close your NAB Visa Debit account or your NAB Visa Debit account is closed by NAB you should contact the merchant to revise your regular payment arrangement as the merchant may stop providing the goods and/or services.

26.4 Terms and conditions continue after cancellation

The terms and conditions in Part C will continue after a NAB Visa Debit card is cancelled under clause 26 or your NAB Visa Debit account is closed and until any outstanding amounts to be debited to your NAB Visa Debit account are paid (whether the amounts are accrued or charged before or after the cancellation of your card or closure of your NAB Visa Debit account).

27 Fees and charges

NAB may debit your NAB Visa Debit account with fees applicable to the NAB Visa Debit card and other standard fees, the amount and nature of which are detailed in NAB's brochure 'A Guide to Fees and Charges – Personal Banking Fees'. Any fees and charges paid by you are not refundable.

28 Miscellaneous

Parties other than NAB may from time to time offer certain goods and services to you:

  1. free of charge; or
  2. at a particular price,

in connection with your NAB Visa Debit card. NAB is not responsible for any of these goods or services, or the failure of such a party to provide or perform such goods or services.

30 Limits on EFT transactions

30.1 Nominated accounts

Your card details and/or card and/or PIN (or your card account details) enable transactions to be made on any NAB accounts which you have nominated for use with NAB's card based electronic banking facilities.

30.2 Number and type of accounts

There is a limit to the number and type of accounts which can be accessed using NAB's card based electronic banking facilities. Some types of electronic equipment may not allow access to all types of accounts.

NAB Visa Debit cardholders

  1. NAB will nominate your NAB Visa Debit account as your first main account. You may also nominate an additional main account being either 1 main cheque or 1 main statement savings account, including home loan and personal loan accounts.
  2. You may also nominate 3 other cheque or statement savings accounts as nominated account(s).
  3. EFTPOS terminals permit access to your nominated account(s) and will debit a transaction to one of your nominated account(s) being a Visa Debit, cheque or savings account. That is, an individual EFTPOS transaction must be debited to 1 account, although a separate transaction may be debited to another designated 'main account'.

NAB Debit cardholders

  1. You may nominate 2 main cheque or 2 main statement savings accounts, including home loan and personal loan accounts as your main account(s).
  2. You may also nominate 3 other cheque or statement savings accounts as nominated account(s).
  3. EFTPOS terminals permit access to your nominated account(s) and will debit a transaction to one of your nominated account(s) being a cheque or statement savings account. That is, an individual EFTPOS transaction must be debited to 1 account, although a separate transaction may be debited to another designated 'main account'.

30.3 Amounts withdrawn or transferred

NAB reserves the right to limit the amount which may be withdrawn or transferred from a nominated account by way of certain EFT transactions.

A 'daily' limit applies from midnight to midnight Australian Eastern Standard Time or Australian Eastern Standard Summer Time (whichever is applicable).

NAB Debit cardholders

A daily limit applies to all purchases and withdrawals of cash undertaken using your card and PIN.

NAB Visa Debit cardholders

A daily limit applies to all ATM cash withdrawals or to the cash component of a transaction made at an EFTPOS terminal under clause 31.3.

You will be advised of these specific limits when issued with your card, and you will be subsequently advised of any change to these limits. The limits advised by NAB are not an undertaking by NAB to limit the amounts withdrawn or transferred by use of NAB's card based electronic banking facilities. However, the advised limit does limit your liability for unauthorised transactions (see clause 34).

30.4 Valid and irrevocable authority

Your use of a card details and/or card, card account details or PIN through electronic equipment to initiate an EFT transaction is an unchangeable order to NAB to process the EFT transaction. Neither a cardholder nor an accountholder may request NAB to stop or alter the EFT transaction. However, the accountholder's liability for the EFT transaction could be limited in terms of clause 34.

31 Card based electronic banking facilities

31.1 NAB ATMs

Subject to the terms and conditions applying to your nominated account, your card and PIN enable you to use NAB's ATMs as determined by NAB.

NAB's ATMs allow you to withdraw or transfer funds between all nominated accounts, obtain a record of recent transactions, order a repeat statement and check your account balances. Some NAB ATMs may also allow you to deposit funds into a nominated account and to change your PIN.

It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the correct use of ATMs. If you are unsure or require assistance in the operation of the ATM, please seek assistance from NAB's branch staff or contact NAB using the Customer Service details in Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet.

31.2 ATMs provided by other institutions

ATMs provided by other institutions accepting cards may allow you to withdraw funds and check your designated main nominated account(s) balances. Institutions providing other ATMs accepting cards may impose their own fees and restrictions on the operation of the cards with their ATMs including limits to the amounts which may be withdrawn. NAB accepts no responsibility for such fees and restrictions.

31.3 EFTPOS terminals provided by merchants

EFTPOS terminals allow you to pay for purchases and may allow the option of withdrawing extra cash from your designated main nominated account(s) at certain locations. Merchants providing EFTPOS terminals accepting cards may impose their own fees and restrictions on the operation of the cards with their EFTPOS terminals including limits to the amounts which may be withdrawn. NAB accepts no responsibility for such fees and restrictions.

31.4 Other transactions through electronic equipment

The merchant or other person may impose their own restrictions on these EFT transactions (such as a purchase at a merchant using a contactless reader). Contactless readers give you the option of making purchases up to the limit notified to you by NAB. NAB has no control over whether a merchant will accept this form of contactless purchase. The merchant or other person may impose their own restrictions on these EFT transactions.

NAB accepts no responsibility for any such restrictions in connection with any such transactions through electronic equipment.

31.5 Functionality

The processing of an EFT transaction to a particular account will depend on the functionality of the electronic equipment (for example an overseas ATM may process a transaction to a nominated account(s) which you did not seek to initiate).

NAB accepts no responsibility for this differing functionality.

31.6 Fees

Fees may apply to any EFT transaction you undertake with NAB's card based electronic banking facilities, the amount and nature of which are detailed in 'A Guide to Fees and Charges – Personal Banking Fees'.

32 Operation of card based electronic banking services

32.1 Receipts

  1. It is desirable for you to retain or record receipts to verify your account statements;
  2. The issuing of a receipt by an EFTPOS terminal or ATM may be accepted by NAB as evidence that the transaction has been performed. This condition does not apply to deposits lodged in ATMs (see clauses 33.1 and 33.2).
  3. When making a contactless purchase you must check the correct amount of the purchase is displayed on the contactless reader or on the merchant register.

32.2 Statements

  1. For all nominated accounts a statement is issued in accordance with the terms and conditions for the nominated account(s).
  2. For the purposes of preparing statements, NAB reserves the right to show an EFT transaction as having been carried out on the next or subsequent banking day(s) after the day the transaction was made.

32.3 Review statements of account

You should always review your statement and bring to NAB's attention any discrepancies, errors or unauthorised transactions as soon as possible. If you wish to dispute an EFT transaction, you must report this to NAB. Please refer to the Customer Service details in Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet.

32.4 Discrepancies in cash delivered by an ATM

When withdrawing cash from an ATM, you should immediately check that the correct sum has been delivered. If there is a discrepancy between the amount of cash delivered by an ATM, and the amount shown on the receipt, report the facts as soon as possible to NAB. Please refer to the 'ATM emergency' details in Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet.

32.5 Cards

Remember to take proper care of your card and card details. Do not keep your card in contact with other cards that have a magnetic strip. Magnetic strips can react with each other and if this occurs your card may no longer operate an ATM or EFTPOS terminal.

  1. Your card is issued with validity dates denoting month and year e.g. 06/15 is June 2015. The commencing date is the first day of the month, the expiry date the last day of the month. Cards are not valid before or after these dates.

    Expired cards must be destroyed.

  2. Your card remains the property of NAB. You must return the card to NAB or destroy the card by cutting it vertically in half through its magnetic strip upon:
    1. notice from NAB cancelling your card; or
    2. closure of all your nominated accounts; or
    3. revocation of authority to operate your nominated accounts by means of your card.
  3. Your card may be confiscated by an ATM if you repeat invalid PIN entries. The number of additional entries allowed after the first invalid entry may be varied at NAB's discretion and is not subject to any prior notice.

32.6 EFTPOS terminal malfunction

In the event of an EFTPOS terminal malfunction or failure, the merchant may provide alternative manual procedures to enable a transaction to be made. You will be required to present your card for imprinting of a transaction voucher, indicate one of the main nominated accounts, and sign the transaction voucher. (The procedure is similar to that used for paper voucher credit card transactions.) NAB reserves the right to vary the manual procedure at any time.

If you have indicated on the paper voucher that a main nominated account is to be debited, and that account is closed or has insufficient funds available, NAB may redirect the debit entry to the other main nominated account without notice to you.

32.7 Merchants

NAB will not be liable for the refusal of any merchant to accept a card details and/or card, or card account details.

Any complaints concerning goods and services purchased must generally be resolved with the merchant. In some circumstances we may be able to lodge a claim to request a refund for you under the card scheme's rules for disputed transactions. Details about chargeback rights and the procedures for disputing transactions are described in clause 25.

32.8 Promotional material

Promotional material referring to NAB's card based electronic banking facilities that is displayed on or in any premises, is not to be taken as a warranty by NAB, or by the merchant carrying on a business in those premises, that all goods and services may be purchased by means of an EFT transaction. You also accept that the use of your card details and/or card and card account details may be subject to other limitations imposed by the merchant.

33 Deposits

33.1 Cash deposits at ATMs

When making a cash deposit at an ATM you should be aware that such deposits may not be credited to your account immediately.

A cash deposit lodged in an ATM is subject to verification and at NAB's discretion may not be credited to your account until the following banking day. Deposits made at an ATM after 6.00pm will be credited to your account within 2 banking days.

In the event of a discrepancy between the deposit value determined by NAB and the amount recorded by the ATM, the accountholder will be promptly advised of the actual amount which has been credited to the nominated account. Remember to include the ATM deposit advice in the envelope with the deposit, as failure to do so may delay funds being credited to your account. NAB reserves the right to correct or reverse any such deposit transaction.

NAB will accept responsibility for the security of your deposit correctly lodged at an ATM which offers depositing services, subject to verification of the amount deposited.

You should keep all records associated with a deposit that you make via an ATM until the deposit is verified and recorded on your account statement. Where the claimed deposit is not available for verification following forceful removal of the ATM or other criminal act, NAB requires you to reasonably substantiate the value of your claim.

33.2 Deposits in the form of cheques

If you make a deposit in the form of, or including a cheque, the funds of the cheque are not available for withdrawal until the cheque reaches the paying bank and NAB is guaranteed payment. (This condition applies to deposits made through an ATM or at a branch of NAB.) In the event of a discrepancy between the value of cheques deposited as determined by NAB and your deposit claim, NAB will inform you. NAB reserves the right to correct or reverse any such deposit transaction.

Because of the requirements of NAB's systems, NAB reserves the right to place a 'hold' on the full amount of a deposit which includes a cheque.

For example, where a deposit includes cash and 1 or more cheques, the hold applies to the cash component as well as to the value of cheques.

Holds are normally applied for 3 banking days, and transactions requiring use of these funds may be refused within this period.

Therefore, if you wish to deposit cash and expect to withdraw against the sum of that cash within the 3 day period, you are advised to deposit the cash separately from the cheques. (That is, make 2 deposit transactions.)

NAB will not be responsible for any claim or refusal of a transaction if this condition is disregarded. You are entitled to enquire at any branch of NAB if holds are to be applied to any deposit.

Subject to clause 34, you, the cardholder, agree to indemnify NAB against all claims or liabilities it may incur as a consequence of it collecting a cheque of which you are not the true owner.

34 Responsibilities and liabilities

34.1 Your responsibilities with respect to the card and card details

You must:

  1. sign your card immediately on receipt;
  2. keep your card in a safe place, and provide reasonable protection for the card and card details from theft;
  3. notify NAB should your card or card details be lost or stolen (refer to the 'Lost/Stolen Cards Compromised Personal Identification Numbers (PINs)' details in Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet, or any other means NAB makes available to you.);
  4. advise any change of address (refer to Customer Service details in Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet);
  5. use your card in accordance with these NAB Electronic Banking (Debit cards) terms and conditions;
  6. destroy an expired card; and
  7. if a temporary card has been issued to you, destroy it upon receipt of a personalised card.

34.2 General responsibility

The accountholder is generally responsible for all EFT transactions authorised by the use of the card details and/or card and/or PIN and/or the card account details or undertaken by another person with your knowledge and/or consent. The accountholder's liability for any use not authorised by you may however be limited as provided below.

34.3 No Accountholder liability in some circumstances

The accountholder is not liable for losses:

  1. that are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of NAB's employees or agents or companies involved in networking arrangements or of merchants or of their agents or employees;
  2. arising because the PIN, card details or card is forged, faulty, expired, or cancelled;
  3. that arise from EFT transactions which required the use of your card or card details or your PIN and that occurred before you received your card or card details or PIN;
  4. that are caused by the same EFT transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to the same account;
  5. resulting from unauthorised transactions occurring after notification to NAB that the card or card details have been misused, lost or stolen or the security of the PIN has been breached;
  6. resulting from unauthorised transactions where it is clear that you have not contributed to such losses.

34.4 Accountholder liability for unauthorised transactions

The accountholder is liable for losses resulting from unauthorised transactions as provided below:

  1. where NAB can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to the losses through your fraud or your contravention of the security requirements in clause 34.5, the accountholder is liable for the actual losses which occur before NAB is notified that the card has been misused, lost or stolen or that the security of the PIN has been breached; and
  2. the accountholder is also liable where NAB can prove on the balance of probability that you contributed to losses resulting from unauthorised transactions because you unreasonably delayed notifying NAB after becoming aware of the misuse, loss or theft of the card or card details, or that the security of the PIN has been breached. The accountholder will then be liable for the actual losses which occur between the time you became aware (or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen card or card details) and when NAB was actually notified.

    However in relation to (a) and (b) above, the accountholder will not be liable for any of the following amounts:

    1. that portion of the losses incurred on any 1 day which exceed the applicable daily transaction limit(s);
    2. that portion of the losses incurred in a period which exceeds any other periodic transaction limit(s) applicable to that period;
    3. that portion of the total losses incurred on any account which exceeds the balance of your account(s);
    4. all losses incurred on any accounts which NAB and the accountholder had not agreed could be accessed using your card and PIN.
  3. where a PIN was required to perform the unauthorised transactions and neither paragraph (a) nor (b) applies, the accountholder is liable for the least of:
    1. $150; or
    2. the balance of those account(s) (including any prearranged credit) from which value was transferred in the unauthorised transactions and which NAB and the accountholder have agreed may be accessed using the PIN; or
    3. the actual loss at the time NAB is notified (where relevant) that the card has been misused, lost or stolen or that the security of the PIN has been breached (excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any 1 day which exceeds any applicable daily transaction or other periodic transaction limit(s)).

34.4A The accountholder is liable for losses arising from unauthorised transactions that occur because you contributed to the losses by leaving a card in an ATM.

34.5 Your responsibilities

  1. Where NAB provides you with a PIN you must not:
    1. voluntarily disclose your PIN to anyone including a family member or friend (unless your card is a Deposit Only Card);
    2. record your PIN on your card or on any article carried with the card or liable to loss or theft simultaneously with the card;
    3. act with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of your PIN.
  2. Where NAB allows you to select a PIN or change your PIN you must not select:
    1. a numeric code which represents your birth date; or
    2. an alphabetical code which is a recognisable part of your name.

Either of these selections may mean you are liable for losses caused by unauthorised transactions caused by a breach of your PIN.

34.6 Guidelines

You should also comply with these guidelines to protect the security of your card details and/or card, card account details and PIN and thus reduce the possibility of any inconvenience to you:

  1. do not permit any other person to use your card details and/or card or card account details;
  2. destroy your PIN envelope after memorising your PIN;
  3. take reasonable care when using an ATM or EFTPOS terminal to ensure your PIN is not disclosed to any other person; and
  4. should you require a memory aid to recall your PIN you may make such a record providing the record is reasonably disguised. However, NAB does not consider the following examples to provide a reasonable disguise and you must not:
    1. record the disguised PIN on your card;
    2. disguise your PIN by reversing the number sequence;
    3. describe the disguised record as a 'PIN record' or 'Password record';
    4. disguise your PIN as a telephone number, part of a telephone number, postcode or date of birth;
    5. disguise your PIN using alphabetical characters, eg.: A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 etc

There may be other forms of disguise which may be similarly unsuitable because of the ease of another person discerning your PIN.

Please note all the guidelines set out in clause 34.6 are for your assistance but your liability in the case of an actual loss will be governed by the ePayments Code and clause 34.5 in this booklet. However, you should take care to meet the guidelines set out in clause 34.6 as a failure to meet these guidelines may in some circumstances constitute an act of extreme carelessness under clause 34.5(a)(iii).

34.7 Advising NAB

If you believe your card or card details has been lost or stolen, your PIN divulged or that there has been misuse of your card, you must advise NAB as soon as possible. Please refer to NAB's Lost/ Stolen Cards/Compromised Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) details in Summary of Important Information at the front of this booklet, or any other means NAB makes available to you.

Once NAB has been notified of these matters the accountholder's liability for further EFT transactions will be limited.

Where telephone facilities are not available during particular periods, any losses occurring during these periods that were due to non-notification are deemed to be the liability of NAB, providing notification is made to NAB within a reasonable time of the facility again becoming available.

NAB will acknowledge your report and you should record or retain this acknowledgement.

34.8 Liability under Visa card scheme

Notwithstanding the above where you notify NAB of an unauthorised transaction on a NAB Visa Debit card, NAB will not hold the accountholder liable for an amount greater than the liability the accountholder would have had if NAB had, at the time the complaint was made, exercised its rights (to the extent relevant) under the rules of the Visa card scheme.

34.9 Failure of NAB's electronic equipment

  1. Except in the case of a business EFT transaction, NAB will be liable to you for losses you suffer caused by the failure of NAB's electronic equipment or system to complete an EFT transaction accepted by NAB's system or NAB's electronic equipment in accordance with your instructions.

    However, NAB will not be liable for consequential losses where you should have been aware that NAB's electronic equipment or system was unavailable for use or malfunctioning. NAB's responsibilities in this case will be limited to the correction of errors in your account and the refund of any charges or fees imposed on you as a result. NAB will also not be liable for any losses caused by the failure of NAB's electronic equipment where NAB's system or electronic equipment had not accepted the EFT transaction.

  2. NAB will not be liable to you for any loss, claim, liability or outgoing, including without limitation any consequential loss or liability, which you suffer because of any failure of NAB's systems or NAB's electronic equipment to complete a business EFT transaction.

39 Liability for unauthorised transactions provisions for all personal EFT transactions

39.1 This clause sets out important rules which may govern an accountholder's liability for unauthorised transactions. The liability provisions set out below override any other clause to the extent of any conflict or inconsistency for all personal EFT transactions.

39.2 When the accountholder is not liable

The accountholder is not liable for losses:

  1. that are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of NAB's employees or agents or companies involved in networking arrangements or of merchants or of their agents or employees;
  2. arising because the NAB ID, authentication service and/or password is forged, faulty, expired, or cancelled;
  3. that arise from personal EFT transactions which required the use of the authentication service and/or password and that occurred before the user received the authentication service and/or password;
  4. that are caused by the same personal EFT transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to the same account;
  5. resulting from unauthorised transactions occurring after notification to NAB that the security of the authentication service and/or password has been breached;
  6. resulting from unauthorised transactions where it is clear that the user has not contributed to such losses.

39.3 When the accountholder is liable

The accountholder will be liable for losses resulting from unauthorised transactions as provided below:

  1. where NAB can prove on the balance of probability that the user contributed to the losses through the user's fraud or contravention of the security requirements in clause 39.4, the accountholder is liable for the actual losses which occur before NAB is notified that the security of the authentication service and/or password has been breached; and
  2. the accountholder is also liable where NAB can prove on the balance of probability that the user contributed to losses resulting from unauthorised transactions because the user unreasonably delayed notifying NAB after becoming aware that the security of the authentication service and/or password has been breached. The accountholder will then be liable for the actual losses which occur between the time the user became aware and when NAB was actually notified.

    However, in relation to (a) and (b) above, for losses arising from unauthorised transactions the accountholder will not be liable to pay:

    1. the portion of losses incurred on any 1 day which exceeds the applicable daily transaction limit(s) (if any);
    2. the portion of losses incurred in a period which exceeds any other periodic transaction limit(s) applicable to that period;
    3. the portion of the total losses incurred on any account which exceeds the balance of that account (including any prearranged credit);
    4. all losses incurred on any accounts which the accountholder and NAB had not agreed could be accessed using the authentication service and/or password.
  3. When limited liability applies

    Where the authentication service and/or password was required to perform the unauthorised transaction(s) and neither paragraph (a) nor (b) applies, the accountholder is liable for the lesser of:

    1. $150;
    2. the balance of those account(s) (including any prearranged credit) from which value was transferred in the unauthorised transactions and which NAB and the accountholder have agreed may be accessed using the authentication device and/ or password; or
    3. the actual loss at the time NAB is notified that the security of the authentication service and/or password has become known to someone else (excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any 1 day which exceeds any applicable daily transaction or other periodic transaction limit(s)).

39.4 User's responsibilities under the ePayments Code

  1. Where NAB provides the user with an authentication service and/or password the user must not:
    1. voluntarily disclose the authentication service and/or password to anyone including a family member or friend, except when you are creating an authorised user;
    2. act with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of the authentication service and/or password; and
    3. record the password without making any reasonable attempt to protect the security of the password record on the 1 article or on several articles so that they are liable to loss or theft simultaneously.
  2. Where NAB allows the user to select a password or change the user's password the user must not select:
    1. a numeric code which represents the user's birth date; or
    2. an alphabetical code which is a recognisable part of the user's name.

Either of these selections may mean you are liable for losses caused by unauthorised transactions caused by a breach of the security of the password.

39.5 Failure of NAB equipment or NAB system

NAB will be liable to users for losses users suffer, caused by the failure of NAB's equipment or NAB's system to complete a personal EFT transaction accepted by NAB's equipment or NAB's system in accordance with the user's instructions.

However, where the user should have been aware that NAB's equipment or NAB's system was unavailable for use or malfunctioning, NAB's responsibilities will be limited to the correction of any errors in the accountholder's account and the refund of any charges or fees imposed on the accountholder as a result.

NAB will also not be liable for any losses caused by the failure of NAB's equipment or NAB's system where NAB's equipment or NAB's system had not accepted the personal EFT transaction.

39.6 Advising NAB

If the user believes the security of the user's authentication service and/or password has been breached, the user must advise NAB Internet Banking Support as soon as possible.

Once NAB has been notified of these matters the accountholder's liability for further personal EFT transactions will be limited. Where telephone facilities for notification are not available during particular periods, any losses occurring during these periods that were due to non-notification are deemed to be the liability of NAB, providing notification is made to NAB within a reasonable time of the facility again becoming available. NAB, will acknowledge the user's report, and the user should record or retain this acknowledgment.

39.7 Credit and charge cards

Notwithstanding the rest of clause 39 where the user notifies NAB of an unauthorised transaction on a credit card or charge card account, NAB will not hold the accountholder liable for an amount greater than the liability the accountholder would have had if NAB had, at the time the complaint was made, exercised its rights (to the extent relevant) under the rules of the credit card scheme.

51A Mistaken internet payments using Funds Transfer – Pay Anyone

This clause applies to mistaken internet payments using the Pay Anyone functionality available within internet banking. It sets out important rules where the Sending ADI and the Receiving ADI have subscribed to the ePayments Code and

  • a user reports a mistaken internet payment to NAB as the Sending ADI; or
  • NAB as the Receiving ADI is notified by a Sending ADI that funds have been credited to your account as the result of a mistaken internet payment by its customer.

It does not apply to BPAY payments.

In this clause mistaken internet payment means a payment made by a user through Pay Anyone where funds are paid into the account of an unintended recipient because the user entered or selected the wrong BSB number and/or account number as the result of the user’s error or the user being advised of the wrong BSB number and/or account number. ADI means Authorised Deposit-taking institution and has the same meaning as the term in the Banking Act 1959(Cth). The Receiving ADI is the ADI whose customer received an internet payment and the Sending ADI is the ADI whose customer has made an internet payment.

51A.1 User’s obligation

A user:

  1. must take care to enter or select the correct information about the intended recipient of the funds, required when using Pay Anyone to make a payment. It is not always possible for NAB to recover funds from the unintended recipient.
  2. should report a mistaken internet payment to NAB as soon as possible by:
    • calling 13 BANK (13 22 65); or
    • visiting our website nab.com.au and creating a secure message (Electronic Transaction Dispute).

NAB will acknowledge receipt of the report and the user should record or retain this acknowledgment.

51A.2 Our obligations as a Sending ADI when we receive the user’s report
  1. Obligation to investigate
    NAB will investigate a user’s report of a mistaken internet payment.
  2. Obligation to tell the user about the outcome
    NAB will tell the user about the outcome of a user’s report of a mistaken internet payment:
    1. in writing, and
    2. within 30 business days of the day the report was made.

Process where NAB and the Receiving ADI are not satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred

When a user makes a report both NAB and the Receiving ADI need to be satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred.

If NAB is not satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred NAB is not required to take any further action and will tell you in accordance with 51A.2 (b).

If the Receiving ADI receives a request from NAB to return funds to NAB, but is not satisfied that a mistaken internet payment has occurred, the Receiving ADI may seek their customer’s consent to return the funds to you. If consent is provided to the Receiving ADI, NAB will return these funds to you as soon as practicable.

Process where NAB and the Receiving ADI are satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred and there are insufficient funds

This process applies where both NAB and the Receiving ADI are satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred.

If NAB is satisfied that a mistaken internet payment has occurred, NAB will send the Receiving ADI a request for return of the funds. NAB is reliant on the Receiving ADI advising NAB if there are sufficient funds in their customer’s account to cover the amount of the mistaken internet payment.

If NAB is advised there are insufficient funds in the customer’s account, NAB is reliant on the Receiving ADI using its reasonable endeavours to recover the funds for you from their customer (eg facilitating payment by instalments).

If the Receiving ADI is unable to recover the funds from the unintended recipient you will be liable for losses arising from the mistaken internet payment.

Where NAB and the Receiving ADI are satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred and there are sufficient funds

This table describes the obligation of Receiving ADI and NAB if they are satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred and there are sufficient credit funds available in the account of the unintended recipient to cover the payment.

A different process applies depending on when the user reported the mistaken internet payment to NAB.

User reports the mistaken internet payment to NAB Obligation of Receiving ADI after receiving NAB’s request to return funds NAB’s obligation to pay you
Within 10 business days of making the payment Funds must be returned to NAB within 5 business days (if practicable) of receiving NAB’s request to return the funds or such longer period as is necessary up to a maximum of 10 business days. To return the funds to you as soon as practicable
Between 10 business days and 7 months of making the payment

Complete investigation within 10 business days of receiving NAB’s request to return the funds.

If satisfied a mistaken internet payment has occurred

  1. prevent their customer withdrawing the mistaken internet payment funds for a further 10 business days;
  2. notify their customer they have a period of 10 business days to establish they are entitled to the funds. (This period commences on the date their customer was prevented from withdrawing the funds); and
  3. return funds to NAB within 2 business days of the end of the 10 day period described in (ii) if their customer has not established they are entitled to the funds
To return the funds to you as soon as practicable
After 7 months Seek the consent of their customer to return funds. With the consent of their customer return the funds to NAB. To return the funds to you as soon as practicable

Complaints

For information about making a complaint about the outcome of a mistaken internet payment report or how we have dealt with it, please see clause 14 Complaints in Part B of this booklet.

Our obligations if we are notified about a mistaken internet payment by another ADI

If NAB is notified by a Sending ADI that funds have been credited to your account as the result of a mistaken internet payment by its customer, NAB will act in accordance with the obligations of the Receiving ADI described in 51A.2 including the obligations to return funds in your account to the Sending ADI where applicable.

    2. there are sufficient funds or credit available in the account to meet the value of the BPAY Payment; and
    3. the relevant biller agrees to accept the account.
  2. When a credit card is used to pay a bill through the BPAY Scheme, NAB treats that payment as a credit card purchase transaction.
  3. You acknowledge that the receipt by a biller of any mistaken or erroneous payment does not or will not constitute under any circumstances part or whole satisfaction of any underlying debt owed between the user and that biller.

59.3 Valid payment direction

BPAY Payment instructions will be valid if, when the instruction is given to NAB, the NAB ID and password is used correctly.

59.4 Information you must give NAB

To instruct NAB to make a BPAY Payment, a user must:

  1. enter the correct NAB ID and password;
  2. enter and select the appropriate biller code;
  3. select the appropriate 'from' account;
  4. enter the customer reference number;
  5. enter the amount to be paid; and
  6. confirm the details entered (if correct).

NAB shall not be obliged to effect a BPAY Payment if NAB is not given all of the above information or if any of the information given to NAB is inaccurate.

59.5 Payments

  1. NAB will not accept your instructions to stop a BPAY Payment once instructed to make that BPAY Payment.
  2. A user should notify NAB immediately if the user becomes aware of making a mistake (except for errors relating to payment amount, which should be notified to the biller) when instructing NAB to make a BPAY Payment, or if the user did not authorise a BPAY Payment made from your account.
  3. Subject to clause 59.8, billers who participate in the Bpay Scheme have agreed that a Bpay Payment you make will be treated as received by the biller to whom it is directed:
    1. on the date that BPAY Payment is made, if NAB is told to make the BPAY Payment before NAB's cut-off time for BPAY Payments on a banking day; or
    2. on the next banking day, if NAB is told to make a BPAY Payment after NAB's cut-off time for BPAY Payments on a banking day, or on a non-banking day.
  4. A delay might occur in the processing of a BPAY Payment where:
    1. there is a public or bank holiday on the day after NAB is told to make a BPAY Payment;
    2. NAB is told to make a BPAY Payment either on a day which is not a banking day or after NAB's cut-off time for BPAY Payments on a banking day;
    3. another financial institution participating in the BPAY Scheme does not comply with its obligations under the BPAY Scheme; or
    4. a biller fails to comply with its obligations under the BPAY Scheme.
  5. While it is expected that any delay in processing for any reason set out in clause 59.5(d) will not continue for more than 1 banking day, any such delay may continue for a longer period.
  6. A user must be careful to ensure that NAB is told the correct amount to be paid. If a user instructs NAB to make a BPAY Payment and a user later discovers that:
    1. the amount NAB was told to pay was greater than the amount needed to be paid, you must contact the biller to obtain a refund of the excess.
    2. the amount NAB is told to pay was less than the amount needed to be paid, you can make another BPAY Payment for the difference between the amount actually paid to a biller and the amount needed to be paid.

59.6 Liability for mistaken payments, unauthorised transactions and fraud

  1. If under this clause you are liable for an unauthorised or fraudulent payment as a result of a BPAY billing error and the ePayments Code applies, then your liability is limited to the lesser of:
    1. the amount of that unauthorised or fraudulent payment; and
    2. the limit (if any) of your liability set out in clause 39 of this booklet.

    If (ii) applies, then NAB will be liable to you for the difference between the amount for which you are liable and the amount of the unauthorised or fraudulent payment.

  2. NAB will attempt to make sure that BPAY Payments are processed promptly by the participants in the BPAY Scheme. A user must tell NAB promptly if the user:
    1. becomes aware of any delays or mistakes in processing BPAY Payments;
    2. did not authorise a BPAY Payment that has been made from your account; or
    3. thinks that you have been fraudulently induced to make a BPAY Payment. NAB will attempt to rectify any such matters in relation to your BPAY Payments in the way described in this clause. However, except as set out in clauses 59.6, and 39 to 40, NAB will not be liable for any loss or damage (including consequential loss or damage) a user suffers as a result of using the BPAY Scheme.

      The longer the delay between when you tell NAB of the error and the date of your BPAY Payment, the more difficult it may be to perform the error correction. If this is the case, you will need to demonstrate that an error has occurred, based on your own records, or liaise directly with the biller to correct the error.

  3. If a BPAY Payment is made to a person or for an amount which is not in accordance with your instructions (if any), and your account was debited for the amount of that payment, NAB will credit that amount to your account. However, if a user was responsible for a mistake resulting in that payment and NAB cannot recover within 20 banking days of NAB attempting to do so the amount of that payment from the person who received it, you must pay NAB that amount.
  4. If a BPAY Payment is made in accordance with a payment direction which appeared to NAB to be from you or on your behalf but for which you did not give authority, NAB will credit your account with the amount of that unauthorised payment.

    However, you must pay NAB the amount of that unauthorised payment if:

    1. NAB cannot recover within 20 banking days of NAB attempting to do so that amount from the person who received it; and
    2. the payment was made as a result of a payment direction which did not comply with NAB's prescribed security procedures for such payment directions.

If NAB is able to recover part of the amount of that payment from the person who received it, you must only pay NAB the amount of that payment that was not able to be recovered.

  1. If a BPAY Payment is induced by the fraud of a person involved in the BPAY Scheme, then that person should refund you the amount of the fraud-induced payment. However, if that person does not refund you the amount of the fraud-induced payment, you must bear the loss (including any consequential loss) unless some other person involved in the BPAY Scheme knew of the fraud or would have detected it with reasonable diligence, in which case that person must refund you the amount of the fraud-induced payment that is not refunded to you by the person that induced the fraud.
  2. If a BPAY Payment made by a user falls within the type described in clauses 59.6(c) or, 59.6(d) and the payment also falls within the type described in clause 59.6(e), then NAB will apply the principles stated in clause 59.6(e).

    1. Except where a BPAY Payment is a mistaken payment referred to in clause 59.6(c), an unauthorised payment referred to in 59.6(d), or a fraudulent payment referred to in 59.6(e), BPAY Payments are irrevocable. No refunds will be provided through the BPAY Scheme where a user has a dispute with the biller about any goods or services a user may have agreed to acquire with the biller. Any dispute must be resolved with the biller.

    IMPORTANT
    Even where a BPAY Payment has been made using a credit card or a charge card no 'chargeback' rights will be available under the BPAY Scheme.

  3. You indemnify NAB against any loss or damage NAB may suffer due to any claim, demand or action of any kind brought against NAB arising directly or indirectly because a user acted negligently or fraudulently in connection with this agreement:

59.7 Suspension

NAB may suspend your right to participate in the BPAY Scheme at any time including your use of BPAY View. Examples of where we may do this include where your account is inactive and where NAB believes on reasonable grounds that your continued participation in the BPAY scheme may cause loss to NAB or to you. These examples are for guidance only and do not prevent NAB from suspending access for any other reason.

59.8 BPAY payment cut-off times There are cut-off times and processing times for biller payments.

  1. NAB Telephone Banking cut-off times

    6.30pm Australian Eastern Standard Time or Australian Eastern Standard Summer Time in Sydney (whichever is applicable).

  2. NAB Internet Banking cut-off times

    Please refer to the FAQs section at nab.com.au for further details.

    However, the payment may take longer to be credited to a biller if you tell NAB to make a payment on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday or if another participant in the BPAY Scheme does not process a BPAY Payment as soon as they receive its details.

59.9 When a biller cannot process a payment

If NAB is advised that a payment cannot be processed by a biller, NAB will:

  1. advise you of this;
  2. credit your account with the amount of the BPAY Payment; and
  3. take all reasonable steps to assist in making the BPAY Payment as quickly as possible.

59.10 Account records

You should check your account records carefully, and promptly report to NAB as soon as you become aware of any BPAY Payments that you think are errors or are BPAY Payments that you did not authorise or you think were made by someone else without your permission.

NAB is not liable for loss suffered by a user where:

  1. there is no breach of a legal duty of care owed to you by NAB or by any of its employees or agents; or
  2. such loss or damage is not reasonably foreseeable result of any such breach.

NAB will not be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from a breach by you of any term of these terms and conditions.

We run our business in Australia and overseas. We may need to share some of your information (including credit information) with organisations outside Australia.

We may store your information in cloud of other types of networked or electronic storage. As electronic or networked storage can be accessed from various countries via an internet connection, it’s not always practicable to know in which country your information may be held.

Overseas organisations may be required to disclose information we share with them under a foreign law. In those instances, we will not be responsible for that disclosure.

We will not share any of your credit information with a credit reporting body, unless it has a business operation in Australia. We are not likely to share credit eligibility information (that is, credit information we obtain about you from a credit reporting body of that we derive from that information) with organisations unless they have business operations in Australia. However in the event NAB seeks assistance from a related company to manage defaulting loans, we may need as a consequence to disclose credit eligibility information to the Bank of New Zealand, located in New Zealand. We are likely to share other credit information about you with organisations outside Australia. A list of countries is which those overseas organisations are located is set out above.

Contact credit reporting bodies if you think you have been the victim of a fraud

If you believe that you have been or a likely to be the victim of fraud (including identity fraud), you can request a credit reporting body not to use or disclose the information they hold about you. If you do this, the credit reporting body mustn’t use or disclose the information during an initial 21 day period without your consent (unless the use or disclosure is required by law). This is known as a ban period.

If, after the initial 21 day ban period, the credit reporting body believes on reasonable grounds that you continue to be or are likely to be the victim of fraud, the credit reporting body must extend the ban period as they think reasonable in the circumstances. The credit reporting body must give you a written notice of the extension.

Contact credit reporting bodies if you don’t want your information used by them for direct marketing/pre-screening purposes

Credit reporting bodies can use the personal information about you that they collect for a pre-screening assessment at the request of a credit provider unless you ask them not to. A pre-screening assessment is an assessment of individuals to see if they satisfy particular eligibility requirements of a credit provider to receive direct marketing. You have the right to contact a credit reporting body to say that you don’t want your information used in pre-screening assessments. If you do this, the credit reporting body must not use your information for that purpose.
