Things to know before you start

Entity applications

If the account is in the name of an entity (company, trust or SMSF), you'll need to provide:

  • the name and address of the company, trust or SMSF
  • details of other NAB accounts for the company, trust or SMSF, including the NAB ID number (if an existing NAB customer).

If you're a new NAB customer you may also need to visit a NAB branch to finalise the opening of your account.

Tax File Numbers

This is optional, but is handy if provided. If you choose not to provide your TFN we’re obliged to collect withholding tax on the interest you earn.
