NAB has a proud track record in making banking fairer for all Australians. Our approach to fees and charges is based on the following guiding principles:

  • Value - fair fees and charges that deliver competitive value to our customers.
  • Choice and Access - products and services that provide flexibility and choice in how and when customers bank with us.
  • Simplicity and Transparency - simpler and fewer fees that are well understood by our customers and bankers.

Fee updates – further reference

As part of our effort to make banking with NAB simpler and easier, we are embarking on a journey to remove fees. As we are removing fees in between publications, we are unable to keep the guide up to date. Please be informed that some of the fees contained in this guide may no longer be charged. For a complete list of fee removals, please visit www.nab.com.au/fewerfees.

A guide to fees and charges - personal banking fees

What's in this guide?

This guide covers the fees that may apply for a range of our personal accounts and services. It only applies to NAB branded products and services unless we have specifically advised you otherwise. You can use this guide to identify which fees may apply to you and ways you may reduce or avoid these fees.

Section 1 details the fee structure for NAB Transaction and Savings accounts and NAB Visa Debit card.

Section 2 details the fee structure for service fees.

Sections 3-6 cover the remaining fees which could apply to your account including fees relating to loans and lending, and government taxes and charges. We pass on government charges and taxes to customers at the time they are payable. These taxes may change at any time.
