Financial Claims Scheme Disclosure
The Financial Claims Scheme provides a guarantee of funds deposited with an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) such as NAB. In the event that an ADI becomes insolvent, customers may be eligible to claim the amount of their deposits with that ADI from the Scheme. Payments under the Scheme are subject to a limit for each depositor. For more information regarding the Scheme, visit the Financial Claims Scheme website.
The NAB Professional Funds Account is an at-call savings deposit account that is designed for Corporate and Institutional customers.
1. How will your account work?
1.1 You must deposit at least $500,000 to open the account after which time your balance may fall below $500,000. The account commences on the day NAB receives cleared funds for the deposit amount.
1.2 The balance of the account may fall below $500,000 but the account must not be overdrawn.
1.3 If you fail to pay the minimum initial deposit of $500,000 at the time the account is opened or within two weeks of account opening, the account may be:
(a) frozen for withdrawals until such time as the balance reaches this amount; or
(b) closed and the principal returned to you.
1.4 After the initial deposit you may deposit any amount to, and you may withdraw up to the available credit balance from, the account.
1.5 You may arrange to access the account through NAB Connect, Telephone or Internet Banking or a similar service provided by NAB. Such access will be governed by NAB standard terms and conditions relating to the service. If you do not have access to these services please contact your banker.
2. What interest will I receive/pay?
2.1 The interest rate applicable to the account will either be:
(a) a single rate applicable to the whole of the credit balance; or
(b) a separate rate applicable to each tier of the credit balance. For example:
Tier 1: up to $500,000 = base rate + margin 1
Tier 2: $500,000 to $1,000,000 = base rate + margin 2
Tier 3: over $1,000,000 = base rate + margin 3
Different rates will apply to different levels of credit balance. Those rates will also fluctuate. The level of credit balance and the rates applicable to them, or where applicable a single rate are as notified to you at the time you open your account as disclosed in the NAB Professional Funds Account – Flyer. They are also available from NAB at any time.
2.2 The interest rate(s) applicable to the account are a combination of both:
(a) a base interest; and
(b) a margin.
2.3 The interest rate(s) applicable to the account, including the margin, are quoted by your NAB Banker upon application, and accepted by you at that time. The rate(s) are conﬁrmed to you at the time the account is opened.
2.4 The base rate is a variable interest rate and is subject to change. The base rate is as disclosed in the ‘NAB Professional Funds Account – Flyer’.
2.5 Your margin is subject to change at NAB’s reasonable discretion under clause 10 of these terms and conditions. NAB will notify you of a change to this margin in accordance with the terms and conditions.
2.6 NAB will pay interest calculated on the daily credit balance of the account as at the end of each day (AEST/AEDT) up to and including the day before the last banking day of each month. Interest will be credited to the account the next banking day. The interest rate applies to the whole of the credit balance that exceeds the credit interest threshold (if applicable). When more than one rate applies to your account, the applicable rate applies to the applicable tier of your account balance.
2.7 If the account is overdrawn without an approved overdraft limit, you must put the account in credit promptly and must pay NAB interest on the amount overdrawn at the default rate charged by NAB for the account from time to time. The default rate is detailed in the Notiﬁed Interest rate Flyer, and you will be notiﬁed of any change to the default rate.
It is also available from NAB from time to time. The interest is calculated on the daily debit balance of the account as at the end of each day (AEST/AEDT) and will be charged to the account on the last banking day of each month.
You may also incur any applicable Dishonour charges, and a Reference Fee, the amount and nature of which are available from NAB at any time.
How we determine your end of day balance for non-banking days
2.8 When determining the end of day balance on your account for the purpose of calculating interest, transactions which occur on non-banking days (for example, NPP Payments made or received on a non-banking day) are treated as having been made on the next banking day and will be recorded on your statement as having occurred on that next banking day. So, your end of day balance for a non-banking day will be the same as the end of day balance for the preceding banking day.
3. When will I receive statements?
3.1 NAB will send you statements of the account monthly, unless you request otherwise.
4. You must check your statements
4.1 Without limiting any part of these terms and conditions for your account, 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 that you did not authorise or for which the information recorded is incorrect. Failure to promptly report unauthorised transactions may increase your liability.
5. What bank fees are applicable to this account?
5.1 NAB will not charge you any bank fees in respect of the account.
5.2 NAB may debit the account with government charges, duties and taxes where applicable (including without limitation any withholding tax).
6. PayID, Osko and New Payments Platform You can create a PayID for your account and you can use your account to make and receive Osko Payments and other NPP Payments (with or without a PayID). Refer to Part C of this booklet for additional terms and conditions regarding PayID, Osko and NPP Payments.
7. General Matters
7.1 An account must not be used for any personal or domestic banking. If you do not have an Australian Business Number then you agree to provide NAB with a declaration (in a form provided by NAB) that the account is not used for personal or domestic reasons.
7.2 NAB’s right to combine or set-off accounts
NAB can combine or set-off the balance of two or more of any type of accounts, credit facilities or other products held by the account holder with NAB, even if they are held at different branches or in joint names. This may happen when one of the account holder’s accounts is overdrawn or is in debit and another in credit.
For example, the credit balance in one 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 account holder does not have a right of combination or set-off unless NAB has agreed.
7.3 NAB will promptly give notice to you if we have combined any of your accounts. NAB need not provide this notice before taking such action.
7. You cannot presume that NAB will pay cheques or other drawings on your account where payment will create an overdrawn balance, even if you hold credit funds in another account which are equal to or more than the overdrawn balance.
7.5 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.
8. Banking Code of Practice
8.1 NAB has adopted the Banking Code of Practice and relevant provisions of the Code apply to this account, if you are an individual or a small business referred to in the Code.
8.2 You can obtain from NAB upon request: (a) information on NAB’s current interest rates and standard fees and charges relating to this account if any;
(b) general descriptive information concerning NAB’s banking services including:
(i) for accounts with cheque access, general descriptive information about cheques;
(ii) account opening procedures;
(iii) NAB’s obligations regarding the conﬁdentiality of your information;
(iv) complaint handling procedures;
(v) bank cheques;
(vi) the advisability of you informing NAB promptly when you are in ﬁnancial difﬁculty;
(vii) the advisability of you reading the terms and conditions applying to each banking service NAB provides to you;
c) general descriptive information about:
(i) the identiﬁcation requirements of the Financial Transactions Report Act 1988 or the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter- Terrorism Financing Act 2006, as applicable;
(ii) the options available to you under the tax ﬁle number legislation; and
d) a copy of the Banking Code of Practice.
9.1 Where these terms and conditions confer a discretion on NAB, NAB will exercise that discretion reasonably and in accordance with its legitimate business interests.
10. Variation and notice provisions
10.1 Changes NAB may make:
In addition to the other changes NAB may make to these terms and conditions, NAB may change any other terms and conditions (including by imposing new fees or charges, changing the amount, type, or method of calculation of fees and charges payable). NAB will make any changes in accordance with any applicable legislation and industry codes. If you do not accept any change we make, you can ask NAB to close your account. You will need to pay any outstanding balance in order to do this.

(i) if the sender or recipient has more than one place of business, the place of business is the sender’s or recipient’s principal place of business; and
(ii) if the sender or recipient does not have a place of business, the place of business is the sender’s or recipient’s usual place.
12. How is the operation of the account governed?
12.1 Provided that we have received notice of such authority in a manner recognised by us, each person you authorise to transact banking business on your behalf is able to undertake the following activities in respect of an account if it is the subject of such an authority and to the extent applicable to the account:
(a) give instructions in relation to withdrawals, periodical payment/debit authorities and, where nominated by the accountholder, electronic NAB services;

12.2 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 12.1, NAB may elect not to follow any instructions given under the authority if:
(a) 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);
(b) in its opinion, the instructions are not clear;
(c) 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
(d) 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).
12.3 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 12.1, NAB may, by giving notice, override the authority and require that all or speciﬁc future transactions must be authorised by all account holders.
13. What goods and services tax and other taxes and charges apply?
13.1 If NAB is liable to pay goods and services or any similar tax (GST) on a supply made in connection with the account, you agree to pay to NAB (on demand) an additional amount equal to the consideration payable for the supply multiplied by the prevailing GST rate.
14. What conditions apply to joint accounts?
14.1 If there are two or more of you, you will be treated as holding the account jointly and NAB may accept for credit to the account any cheque, payment order or bill of exchange that is payable to all of you.

14.2 If any of you die, the account will be treated as the account of the survivor or survivors jointly.
14.3 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 ﬁrst of you named on the account.

15. Can NAB choose not to apply a fee or charge?
15.1 NAB may at its discretion waive any fee or charge to the account to which it is entitled. The failure by NAB to collect any fee or charge that applies to the account does not give rise to a waiver of that fee or charge in the future.
16. What do I do if I have a problem or dispute relating to my account?
16.1 For information about resolving problems or disputes, contact NAB on 1800 152 015, or visit any NAB outlet.

17. Money Laundering and Illegality
17.1 You agree that NAB may delay, block or refuse to make or receive or credit any payment using the services detailed in this booklet if NAB believes on reasonable grounds that making, receiving or crediting that payment may breach any law in Australia or any other country, and NAB will incur no liability to you if NAB does so.
17.2 You declare and undertake to NAB that you do not have any reason to suspect that any payment NAB makes in accordance with any instructions you give NAB using the services detailed in this booklet will breach any law in Australia or any other country.
18. Governing Law
The terms and conditions in this booklet and the transactions contemplated by these terms and conditions are governed by the law in force in Victoria and each party irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of these courts.
19 About PayID
19.1 PayID is the NPP Payment addressing service that enables payers to make NPP Payments to payees using an alternative identiﬁer instead of a BSB and account number.
19.2 You can create a PayID (eg. your mobile number, email address or ABN) to be linked to your account. Once a PayID is created, any payments which a person makes to that PayID will be directed to the account to which that PayID is linked (‘the Linked Account’).
19.3 Each PayID can only be linked to one account at a time, but an account can have multiple PayIDs linked to it. For example, you can create your mobile number and email address as PayIDs to the same account (in which case payments made to either PayID type will be directed to the same account), but you can’t create your mobile number or email address as the PayID for more than one account at a time.
19.4 Where your account is held in joint names, each account holder can link a PayID to the account.
19.5 You are not obliged to create or use a PayID for your account. You can continue to operate your account without a PayID, in which case payments to your account will require your BSB and account number.
20 Your PayID
20.1 Creating your PayID
(a) You can create a PayID for your account through a NAB online banking service that supports PayID creation. We will not create a PayID for you without your prior consent.
(b) In creating a PayID, you represent and warrant that:
i. You own or are otherwise authorised to use the PayID;
ii. the PayID is current, accurate and complete; and
iii. You agree to your PayID being registered in the PayID service.
(c) We can refuse your request to create a PayID where:
i. we have not yet completed verifying your identity; or
ii. we are not satisﬁed that You own or are otherwise authorised to use that PayID; or
iii. we reasonably suspect that the PayID is or has been or will be used for a fraudulent purpose; or
iv. we are required to do so by law or by the operator of the New Payments Platform; or
v. the PayID is already created.
(d) Where your attempt to create a PayID fails because that PayID is already created by someone else in the PayID service, we will try to assist to resolve this by contacting the ﬁnancial institution or other entity that registered that PayID, who is then required to contact the customer to which the PayID is registered to establish if that customer has the right to use the PayID. If that person cannot establish that they are the rightful owner of the PayID, their ﬁnancial institution is required to close that PayID.
20.2 PayID Name
A PayID Name must be registered with your PayID. When you create your PayID, we will either:
(a) issue you a PayID Name; or
(b) enable you to select your own PayID Name from a list we provide you.
We will not permit selection of a PayID Name that we consider could mislead or deceive a payer into sending you NPP Payments intended for another payee.
20.3 Privacy and disclosure
(a) By creating your PayID you acknowledge that you consent to our recording of your PayID, PayID Name and account details in the PayID service to enable payers to make NPP Payments to you, and to the extent that such recording and use constitutes a disclosure and use of personal information within the meaning of the Privacy Law, consent to that disclosure and use.
(b) Disclosure of PayID Name and PayIDs to third parties To help payers identify who they are paying, your PayID Name may be displayed alongside your PayID to any person that enters your PayID as the address for an intended payment. For example, if your mobile number is your PayID, then any person who enters your mobile number in the payee address ﬁeld of their internet banking may see your PayID Name attached to that mobile number.
(c) PayID and joint accounts
Where you hold a joint account, other accountholders may be able to see messages and notiﬁcations associated with payments and other messages addressed to your PayID.
20.4 Transferring your PayID to a different account
(a) You can transfer your PayID to another account with us, or to an account with another ﬁnancial institution. You can do this through one of our online channels that supports PayID maintenance.
(b) A transfer of your PayID to another account with us will generally be effective immediately, unless we notify you otherwise.
(c) A transfer of your PayID to another ﬁnancial institution is completed by that institution. You will need to follow that ﬁnancial institution’s PayID creation process.
(d) Until the transfer is completed, payment to your PayID will continue to be directed to your current Linked Account with us. If the other ﬁnancial institution does not complete the transfer within 14 days, the transfer will be deemed to be ineffective and your PayID will remain with your current Linked Account. You can try to transfer your PayID again at any time.
20.5 Maintaining Pay details
(a) You must keep your PayID details current, accurate and complete
(b) You must close your PayID immediately if you no longer own or have authority to use your PayID.
20.6 Locking your PayID
(a) You may wish to temporarily stop payments to your PayID. You can do this by locking your PayID through the ‘PayID Maintenance’ function in the relevant electronic banking service.
(b) We can lock your PayID at any time without notice if we reasonably suspect that your PayID has been used for fraudulent purposes.
(c) You will not be able to transfer your PayID or receive payments addressed to your PayID while your PayID is locked.
20.7 Closing a PayID
(a) You can close your PayID through the ‘PayID Maintenance’ function in the relevant electronic banking service. Closing a PayID results in removal of your PayID from the PayID service.
(b) We can close your PayID where:
i. we are not satisﬁed that you own or are otherwise authorised to use that PayID; or
ii. we reasonably suspect that the PayID is or has been used for a fraudulent purpose; or
iii. your PayID has remained locked for a period that we reasonably consider to be excessive; or
iv. we are required to so by law or by the operator the New Payments Platform.
(c) We will automatically close your PayID if the Linked Account for that PayID is closed.
20.8 Payments to your PayID
You acknowledge that not all accounts and payment types support payment to a PayID. The ability for a payer to pay to your PayID depends on the payer’s ﬁnancial institution and on the type of payment to be made. As a result, in some cases you may need to provide your BSB and account number to the payer.
21 Making Payments to a PayID
21.1 When you enter the PayID in the payee ﬁeld of the relevant service, we will check to conﬁrm that the PayID has been registered in the PayID service. Where it has, we will display to you on screen the PayID Name attached to that PayID. You must check that the name displayed matches the person that you intend to pay. If you do not recognise the name or the name does not match who you intend to pay, you should contact your intended payee to conﬁrm that all details are correct before proceeding to make payment. Incorrect details could result in a payment to the wrong account and may result in loss of your funds.
21.2 When you direct a payment or other message to a PayID connected to a joint account, the other accountholders may be able to see the messages and notiﬁcations associated with the payment.
21.3 How we process future dated payments to a PayID
(a) We may attempt to make the payment at any time on the scheduled payment date. As a result you should ensure that you have sufﬁcient funds available throughout the day to satisfy the withdrawal. We may decline to process the payment if, at the time we try to make the payment you don’t have sufﬁcient funds in your account.
(b) On the scheduled payment day, before we try to make the payment we will check the PayID service to conﬁrm whether the PayID is still registered and whether there has been a change in the PayID Name since the time you set the payment up. We won’t be able to process the payment if the PayID is no longer registered or is locked, and we won’t process the payment if the PayID Name has changed. You should check the payment status at the end of the day that the payment was scheduled to be made to conﬁrm whether it has gone through. 22 Osko
22.1 About Osko
(a) We subscribe to Osko under the BPAY Scheme.
(b) You can receive Okso Payments to your account. However, you will need to use an online banking channel in order to view full remittance details or other data that is sent with an Osko Payment to your account.
(a) You can make Osko Payments through our online banking channels that support Osko Payments.
(b) You can make Osko Payments to a PayID or to a BSB and account number, provided that the account that you are paying is able to receive Osko Payments. Some payees might not be able to receive Osko or NPP Payments, depending on their account type and their ﬁnancial institution.
(c) If the PayID or account that you entered does not accept Osko payments, we may send the payment as another NPP Payment type. In this case, we will still send the payment in near real-time but the timing of making the funds available to the payee is at the discretion of the receiving bank.
(d) You should ensure that all information you provide in relation to any Osko Payment or other NPP Payment is correct as we will not be able to cancel an Osko Payment or other NPP Payment once it has been processed.
(e) Where you make an Osko Payment or other NPP Payment using a credit or debit card, no ‘chargeback’ rights will be available in relation to the payment.
22.3 Transaction limits
We may impose limits on the value of any Osko Payment, or the aggregate value of Osko Payments or other NPP Payments permitted over a particular period. These limits may be different from limits that apply to other payment types.
22.4 Mistaken and Misdirected Payments
Where we and the sending ﬁnancial institution determine that an NPP Payment made to your account is either a mistaken internet payment or a payment made in error, we may, without your consent, and subject to complying with any other applicable terms and conditions, deduct from your account an amount equal to that mistaken internet payment or payment made in error. A payment made in error includes a fraudulent payment, an over payment, duplicate payment, payment error made by us or a misdirected payment.
22.5 Suspension and termination
(a) We may suspend your ability to make Osko Payments or other NPP Payments at any time where we believe on reasonable grounds that it is necessary to do so to prevent loss to NAB or you, including where we suspect that the service is being used or will be used for fraud.
(b) We may also make the service temporarily unavailable for the purpose of performing system maintenance or upgrades.
(c) We will be required to terminate the Osko service if our membership of BPAY or our participation in Osko is suspended, ceases or is cancelled. We will provide you with as much notice as possible if this occurs.
22.6 Privacy and conﬁdentiality
(a) In order to provide you with services under Osko, we may need to disclose your Personal Information to BPAY and/or its Service Providers. If we do not disclose your Personal Information to BPAY or its Service Providers, we will not be able to provide you with services under Osko.
(b) Accordingly, you agree to our disclosing to BPAY, its service providers and such other participants involved in Osko such Personal Information relating to you as is necessary to facilitate the provision of Osko to you.

Sharing with Credit Reporting bodies
When we’re checking your credit worthiness and at other times, we might share information about you with credit reporting bodies. When we give your information to a credit reporting body, it may be included in reports that the credit reporting body gives other organisations (such as other lenders) to help them assess your credit worthiness.
Some of the information that we give to credit reporting bodies may reﬂect adversely on your credit worthiness, for example, if you fail to make payments or if you commit a serious credit infringement (like obtaining credit by fraud). That sort of information may affect your ability to get credit from other lenders.
With your consent, personal information may also be shared with credit reporting bodies or other approved third parties who are authorised to assess the validity of identiﬁcation information. These checks help us verify whether your identity is real and are not a credit check.
Sharing with third parties
We may disclose your personal information to third parties outside of the Group, including:
• those involved in providing, managing or administering your product or service;
• authorised representatives of the NAB Group who sell products or services on our behalf;
• credit reporting bodies or other approved third parties who are authorised to assess the validity of identiﬁcation information;
• insurance, investment, superannuation and managed funds organisations, and their advisers and service provider;
• medical professionals, medical facilities or health authorities who verify any health information you may provide;
• real estate agents, valuers and insurers (including lenders’ mortgage insurers and title insurers), re-insurers, claim assessors and investigators;
• brokers or referrers who refer your application or business to us;
• other ﬁnancial institutions, such as banks, as well as guarantors and prospective guarantors of your facility;
• organisations involved in debt collecting, including purchasers of debt;
• fraud reporting agencies (including organisations that assist with fraud investigations and organisations established to identify, investigate and/or prevent any fraud, suspected fraud, crime, suspected crime, or misconduct of a serious nature);
• organisations involved in surveying or registering a security property or which otherwise have an interest in such property;
• organisations we sponsor and loyalty program partners, including organisations the NAB Group has an arrangement with to jointly offer products or has an alliance with to share information for marketing purposes;
• companies we arrange or distribute products for, such as insurance products;
• rating agencies to the extent necessary to allow the rating agency to rate particular investments;
• any party involved in securitising your facility, including the Reserve Bank of Australia (sometimes this information is de-identiﬁed), re-insurers and underwriters, loan servicers, trust managers, trustees and security trustees;
• service providers that maintain, review and develop our business systems, procedures and technology infrastructure, including testing or upgrading our computer systems;
• payments systems organisations including merchants, payment organisations and organisations that produce cards, cheque books or statements for us;
• our joint venture partners that conduct business with us;
• organisations involved in a corporate re-organisation or transfer of NAB Group assets or business;

• mailing houses and telemarketing agencies and media organisations who assist us to communicate with you, including media or social networking sites;
• other organisations involved in our normal business practices, including our agents and contractors, as well as our accountants, auditors or lawyers and other external advisers (e.g. consultants and any independent customer advocates);
• government or regulatory bodies (including the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and the Australian Tax Ofﬁce) as required or authorised by law (in some instances these bodies may share it with relevant foreign authorities); and
• where you’ve given your consent or at your request, including to your representatives, or advisors.
Sharing outside of Australia
We run our business in Australia and overseas. We may need to share some of your information (including credit information) with organisations outside Australia.
Sometimes, we may need to ask you before this happens. You can view a list of the countries in which those overseas organisations are located at www.nab.com.au/privacy/overseas-countries-list/
We may store your information in cloud or 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.
If your information is stored in this way, disclosures may occur in countries other than those listed.
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 or 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 in 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 are 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.
