Tax File Number Options

Interest earned on your account may form part of your assessable income.

If you do not provide your Tax File Number (TFN), Australian Business Number (ABN) or advise that you are eligible for an exemption from providing a TFN or ABN, NAB may be obliged to deduct Withholding Tax at the maximum marginal tax rate (plus the Medicare levy) from any interest income you earn on your account. If you are a non-resident of Australia, NAB may also be obliged to deduct Withholding Tax.

Features and benefits

NAB Term Deposit

A NAB Term Deposit is a fixed rate, fixed term investment, providing a secure return on funds, for each agreed term.

A NAB Term Deposit offers:

  • the choice of a wide range of terms for your investment funds, with a fixed return;

the flexibility of monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annual interest payments for certain term deposits.NAB Farm Management Deposit

What is the Farm Management Deposit Scheme?

The Farm Management Deposit Scheme ('the scheme') is a tax-linked risk management tool designed to enable primary producers to make provision for fluctuations in earnings caused by adverse economic and seasonal changes and to receive concessional tax treatment in the process of making such provisions of earnings.

What can NAB Farm Management Deposit do for primary producers?

NAB Farm Management Deposits have an important role to play as a component of your overall risk management strategy. These deposits will enable you to set aside pre-tax income in good financial years, which will then provide reserves as a back-up in less successful financial years.

Subject to certain conditions, you can claim a deduction for the money deposited in a Farm Management Deposit account in the year in which the deposit is made. If you withdraw any deposits that you have previously claimed as a tax deduction, the withdrawals are considered as assessable income in the year in which the withdrawal is made.

Interest received on a NAB Farm Management Deposit is generally assessable in the year that it is earned.

Who can hold a NAB Farm Management Deposit?

  • Generally, an individual who carries on a primary production business in Australia
  • A partner in a partnership that carries on a primary production business in Australia (not being a company); or
  • A beneficiary (not being a company) who is presently entitled to a share in the trust estate, where the trustee carries on a primary production business in Australia.

Eligibility criteria apply to primary producers under the scheme.

What is the minimum investment term offered by NAB?

NAB Farm Management Deposit will allow you to have terms ranging from 1 week to 2 years, depending on the amount of the deposit.

However, it must be remembered that there are restrictions on when you can withdraw any part or all of your deposit in order for the deposit to be considered a 'Farm Management Deposit' for taxation purposes.

Why should I deposit funds in a NAB Farm Management Deposit?

NAB Agribusiness is the largest lender to Australian agriculture and has a commitment which stretches back over 150 years. We have established the largest network of specialist Agribusiness Managers to look after your individual needs, and NAB Farm Management Deposit forms a component of the overall service and products provided by NAB.

Part A Account terms and conditions

1 NAB Term Deposits

Terms

1.1

1.1 NAB offers a range of term deposit terms to which different interest rates apply and different interest payment frequencies are available (for terms over 12 months).

The interest rate is fixed for the term of the NAB Term Deposit. However, the interest rates offered from time to time are subject to change. You may access such interest rates available for different terms and deposit amounts via telephone, in branch or at nab.com.au/termdeposits.

Minimum balance

A minimum balance of $5,000 applies to NAB Term Deposits.

Applying for a NAB Term Deposit1.2 You may apply for a NAB Term Deposit from NAB in person at a NAB Branch, over the telephone or electronically (including via nab. com.au). Please refer to nab.com.au/ termdeposits for current information on the various ways you may apply for a NAB Term Deposit.

NAB reserves the right to accept or reject any request for a NAB Term Deposit at its discretion.

At the time of your application to NAB for a NAB Term Deposit, NAB will quote an interest rate for your requested term deposit term and deposit amount (and where relevant interest payment frequency). On acceptance by you of an interest rate quoted by NAB, NAB will open a NAB Term Deposit for the agreed term and deposit amount.

You may request changes to your NAB Term Deposit term, deposit amount and where applicable, the interest payment frequency up to seven calendar days from the commencement date.

1.3 If you use or intend to use the NAB Connect Channel to open a new, or access an existing, NAB Term Deposit you must be registered as a user of the NAB Connect Channel, and have read and agreed to the NAB Connect Terms and Conditions (including applicable fees and charges) together with these Terms and Conditions.

More information is available from your banker or at nab.com.au/ nabconnect

Making deposits1.4 You must deposit funds up to the agreed deposit amount in your NAB Term Deposit within seven calendar days of the commencement date. After this seven day period, it will not be possible to make any further deposits.

You may make such deposit(s) to your NAB Term Deposit in various ways including via cash, cheque, in Branch, electronic funds transfer, Bpay payment or via NPP.1 For current information on various deposit options available please go to nab.com.au/termdeposits.

1.5 NAB must receive cleared funds for your term deposit. Any cheque or cash deposit must be received by NAB within three business days of your application.

If you make your initial deposit by BPAY® payment from an Australian bank account using the Biller Code and Customer Reference Number provided to you at the submission of your online application, your funds must be received by NAB within three business days of submitting the online application. NAB does not charge any transfer fees or impose any transfer limitation such as maximum payments amounts for BPAY® payments. However, the institution you are sending money from may charge a fee and may impose transfer limitations. You may wish to check with your sending institution in advance.

Interest rate

1.6 The interest rate applying to your term deposit is the rate that NAB is offering for the deposit amount, term and interest frequency the date of your application. This rate is available from NAB in branch, via telephone, NAB Internet Banking or online at nab.com.au.

If we receive your deposit funds more than three business days after the date of your application, we may adjust your interest rate to be the current rate available on the day we receive your funds.

If your initial deposit is made by BPAY® payment then provided we receive your funds via BPAY® within three business days, the interest rate applying to your term deposit will be the higher of either the interest rate on the date of your application or the interest rate on the date that we receive your funds, unless specified otherwise. If we don't receive your BPAY® deposit within three business days we may adjust your interest rate to be the current rate available on the day we receive your funds.

1.7 The interest rate forms part of your terms and conditions. Your interest rate will be confirmed in your lodgement confirmation advice and is fixed for the term chosen unless specified otherwise.

1.8 You may request changes to your term deposit term and, for deposit terms of one year or more, the interest payment frequency of your term deposit, up to seven calendar days from the date on which your account is opened.

Interest payments

1.9 Interest on your term deposit will be calculated daily and credited or paid as follows:

  • for a NAB Term Deposit with a term that is less than one year, NAB will pay the interest at the maturity of that term;
  • for a NAB Term Deposit with a term of one year or more, you may choose to have interest paid or credited
    • Monthly,
    • Quarterly,
    • Six monthly, or
    • Annually and at the maturity of each term

1.10 You may ask NAB for the interest to be:

  • added to the deposit at the maturity of each term,
  • credited to a nominated bank account, or
  • paid by some other form agreed by NAB.

1.11 If the term deposit or interest is due on a day which is not a banking day, NAB may process it on the next banking day.

1.11A If the deposit amount and interest is reinvested for a new term on a non-banking day and on the next banking day the account is closed at your request, interest for the period between reinvestment and closure may be calculated on the deposit amount only.

Prepayment

Advance notice

1.12 When you invest in a term deposit, you are investing a fixed amount for a fixed term at a fixed rate. During the term of your deposit, any withdrawal of funds from the term deposit prior to its maturity will be subject to 31 days’ notice. If you are considering requesting a prepayment, you should contact NAB to provide 31 days’ notice for withdrawal of a part or all of the term deposit before maturity.

1.13

Prepayment costs

If you withdraw a part or all of the term deposit before maturity, regardless of whether you provide advance notice as outlined in clause 1.12, interest will be reduced on the amount you withdraw. The reduction will be based on the proportion of the term remaining according to the percentages shown below:

Percentage of term remaining Percentage of interest paid
0 to less than 20% 80%
20% to less than 40% 60%
40% to less than 60% 40%
60% to less than 80% 20%
80% to less than 100% 10%

Example for full prepayment (interest paid at maturity)

For a $100,000 Term Deposit lodged for 12 months at 3% with interest paid at maturity, fully prepaid after 200 days (almost 7 months):

  • Accrued interest at time of prepayment

= $1,643.84 ($100,000.00 x 3.00% x200/365 days)

  • 45.2% of the term remains (165 of 365 days)
  • According to the table 40% of interest is payable = $657.54 ($1,643.84 x 40%)

– i.e. Prepayment cost = $986.30 ($1,643.84 – $657.54)

• Amount to be prepaid to you: $100,657.54

Example for part prepayment (interest paid at maturity)

For a $100,000 Term Deposit lodged for 12 months at 3% p.a. with interest paid at maturity, $70,000 prepaid after 200 days (almost 7 months):

• Accrued interest at time of prepayment

= $1,643.84 ($100,000.00 x 3.00%

x 200/365 days)

For a $70,000 prepayment:

• Interest earned on $70,000 at time of prepayment = $1,150.68 ($70,000.00 x 3.00% x 200/365 days)

• 45.2% of the term remains (165 of 365 days)

• According to the table 40% of interest is payable = $460.27 ($1,150.68 x 40%)

– ie. Prepayment cost = $690.41 ($1,150.68 - $460.27)

• Accrued interest to be reduced by $690.41 (prepayment cost)

• Amount to be prepaid to you: $70,000.00

The remaining deposit balance of $30,000 will continue to receive interest at the original interest rate of 3% p.a.

When calculating the prepayment cost, we may take into consideration any interim interest already paid to you during the term. Where interim interest has been paid and the prepayment cost cannot be

satisfied at the date of prepayment, we will deduct any shortfall from the prepayment amount due to you. However, the amount paid to you on the prepayment date, plus all previous interest payments made (if any), will always be equal to or more than your original deposit amount.

Minimum account balance

1.14 If an early prepayment would result in the deposit being less than $5,000, NAB may close your term deposit account and repay early the whole of the deposit amount. The interest generated on the term deposit may be reduced on the prepayment according to clause 1.13.

Interest payment

1.15 If only part of a term deposit is withdrawn, NAB will pay or credit the interest on that part at the next interest payment date or at the maturity of the current term, whichever occurs first.

1.16 If your term deposit is closed prior to its maturity, interest will be paid up to but excluding the day of closure, subject to clause 1.13.

Maturity

1.17 You may provide NAB with instructions about the maturity of your term deposit at any time. These instructions can be updated at any stage by contacting NAB before your term deposit matures, and may include options such as asking NAB to:

  • repay the term deposit in cash or by bank cheque or some other form agreed by NAB,
  • credit the term deposit to a nominated NAB account, or
  • invest the term deposit for a new term with or without additional funds.

NAB may accept or reject your request on such terms and conditions as it determines. Such acceptance is effective from the date of maturity of the term that has ended.

1.18 If you choose to invest your term deposit for a new term (with or without additional funds), subject to clause 1.20, the interest rate that will apply during that new term will be the rate NAB advertises on the day of maturity for that amount, term and, for new terms of 12 months or more, interest frequency.

1.19 If you do not provide us with maturity instructions before the maturity date of your term deposit then, subject to clause 1.21, at the maturity date NAB will automatically invest the term deposit for a new term of the same length as the term that has ended, at the interest rate applicable at the start of that new term, on the terms and conditions current on that day. The new maturity date will be the date of the end of the new term.

1.20 For any investment of your term deposit for a new term, you may request changes to your term deposit term, deposit amount and for deposit terms of one year or more, the interest frequency of your term deposit, up to seven calendar days after the commencement of the new term.

Important: NAB offers special and standard term deposit interest rates, and changes those interest rates, from time to time. If your term deposit is invested for a new term, by you or us, the interest rate that applies to that new term may be higher or lower than your previous interest rate. You can contact NAB at any time to find out what term deposit interest rates, including any special rates, are available. You can choose to change the amount, term and in some cases, interest frequency, of your term deposit as set out in clause 1.6 in order to take advantage of any special interest rates which are available at that time.

1.21 If your term deposit amount is less than $5,000, NAB may repay the whole of the term deposit at the maturity of that term in cash, by bank cheque or by credit to a nominated NAB account or some other form agreed by NAB.

Funds Transfers using RTGS

1.21A If, at your request, NAB transfers funds from the term deposit using Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) you acknowledge and agree that:

  • you are solely responsible for ensuring that your instructions are correct. NAB is under no obligation to verify the correctness of your instructions, is entitled to pay to the account identified by you without enquiry, and is under no obligation to use any other information you give to confirm the beneficiary’s ownership of that account. Subject to applicable law, you indemnify and continue to hold NAB indemnified against any liability, loss, damage or expense in respect of your provision of incorrect instructions;
  • NAB will not be liable for and excludes all liability for loss or damage (including any indirect or consequential loss or damage) arising out of or in relation to:

i. - delays, errors, or omission in transmission or payment beyond NAB’s control; or

ii. - acts of default or omission of any kind by you or any third party outside NAB’s control; and

  • once executed by NAB, payments made are irrevocable.
  • whilst there are no bank fees payable in relation to the term deposit, a fee may be payable in relation to the use of RTGS, and that NAB may deduct such fees from the amount being transferred unless NAB has agreed that you will pay the fee in some other way.

If NAB is negligent or in a breach of duty to you, it will supply the payment services again.

Joint Accounts

1.22 If there are two or more of you, you will be treated as holding the term deposit jointly and NAB may accept for credit to the term deposit any cheque, payment order or bill of exchange that is not payable to all of you. This means that each term deposit holder has the right to all of the balance of the term deposit, jointly with other holders.

1.23 If any of you die, the term deposit will be treated as the product of the survivor or survivors jointly.

1.24 Unless any of you request otherwise, NAB letters or notices (including notification of any variation to these terms and conditions) will be forwarded to the mailing address of the first of you named in the term deposit. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, you will all be deemed to have received any NAB letters or notices forwarded in accordance with these terms and conditions.

1.25 NAB may, at its discretion, make exceptions to clauses 1.22 - 1.25 from time to time.

Account Authority

1.26 Each accountholder is authorised to provide instructions in respect of 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.

1.27 When an accountholder authorises a person under clause 1.26 that person is authorised to give instructions in relation to all of the following matters: (i) maturity; (ii) interest payments; and (iii) withdrawal.

1.28 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 1.26 the accountholder(s) agrees that NAB may elect not to follow any instructions given under the authority if:

  • 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);
  • in its opinion, the instructions are not clear;
  • 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
  • NAB is notified of a dispute between joint accountholders (in which case NAB may require all joint accountholders or directors to sign any authority to operate this account).

1.29 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 1.26 the accountholder(s) agrees that NAB may, by giving notice, override the authority and require that all or specific future transactions must be authorised by all accountholders.

1.30 In respect of any authority provided to NAB under clause 1.26, the accountholder(s) agrees that the authority does not prevent NAB from complying with other valid accountholder instructions.

1.31 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.

Fees

1.32 NAB will not charge you any bank fees in respect of the term deposit.

Address notification

1.33 You must notify us promptly of each change of your address.

Statements

1.34 Statements of account are not provided for NAB Term Deposits.

Trustee

2.2 A deposit must not be made by you in your capacity as a trustee unless you do so on behalf of a beneficiary who is presently entitled to a share of the income of the trust estate and who is under a legal disability.

You may reinvest a NAB Farm Management Deposit for a new term under clauses 2.20 to 2.22.

More than one deposit

2.5 If you have, or if you are a trustee, the beneficiary on whose behalf you are making the deposit has, more than one Farm Management Deposit, then the sum of the balances of those deposits must not exceed the maximum deposit amount permitted by legislation. The current maximum Farm Management Deposit amount is available online at nab.com.au.'

Where to deposit?

2.6 NAB must transfer your deposit to another financial institution that agrees to accept the deposit as a Farm Management Deposit for the purpose of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth) by electronic means if you:

  1. request NAB in writing to do so; and
  2. provide NAB with any information or other assistance necessary for this purpose.

2.7 You must specify an account in your name with NAB for the purpose of this agreement. If you do not do so, you authorise NAB to open an account on your behalf. In either case, we refer to this as your 'nominated NAB account'.

2.8 This Clause has been deleted.

Interest

What is the interest rate?

2.9 The interest rate applying to your term deposit is the rate that NAB is offering for the deposit amount, term and interest frequency at the date of your application. For each subsequent term of the deposit, the rate that will apply will be the rate as varied under clauses 2.21 or 2.22. Current rates are available from NAB by contacting your local Agribusiness Manager or online at nab.com.au.

How is interest calculated?

2.10 Interest will be calculated at the agreed rate based on the daily closing credit balance of your Term Deposit, as at the end of each day (AEST/AEDT).

Where is interest credited?

2.11 NAB credits interest to your nominated NAB account. Interest must not be invested as a Farm Management Deposit with NAB without having first been paid to your nominated NAB account.

When is interest credited?

2.12 Subject to clause 2.13, interest on your term deposit will be calculated daily and credited or paid as follows:

  • for a NAB Farm Management Deposit with a term that is less than one year, NAB will pay the interest at the maturity of that term;
  • for a NAB Farm Management Deposit of $5,000 or more with a term of one year or more, you may choose to have interest paid or credited
    • Monthly,
    • Quarterly,
    • Six monthly, or
    • Annually and at the maturity of each term

2.13 If NAB makes a partial prepayment under clauses 2.15 to 2.19 (Prepayment), then interest is credited in respect of that part of the deposit on the next interest payment date or at the maturity of a term, whichever occurs first.

2.14 If interest is due on a day which is not a banking day, it will be paid on the next banking day.

Back to Top

Prepayment

Compulsory repayment

2.15 The whole of the deposit must be repaid by NAB if you, or if you are a trustee, the beneficiary on whose behalf you are making the deposit:

  1. dies;
  2. becomes bankrupt;
  3. ceases to be a primary producer for at least 120 days; or
  4. requests the deposit to be transferred to another financial institution.

Taxation consequences

2.16 You may withdraw the whole or any part of the deposit at any time. However, if you withdraw any part of the deposit within 12 months from the day on which the funds are first deposited, the portion withdrawn will not be, and will be taken to have never been part of a Farm Management Deposit for the purposes of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, unless such a withdrawal is made because you:

  • die
  • become bankrupt;
  • cease to be a primary producer for 120 days or more
  • request the deposit to be transferred to another financial institution; or
  • any other reason allowed by the Income Tax (Farm Management Deposits) Regulations 1998 & the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

Minimum account

2.17 If you withdraw part of the deposit under clause 2.16, the amount of such withdrawal must be at least $1000.

Prepayment costs

2.18 If you withdraw a part or all of the term deposit before maturity, interest will be reduced on the amount you withdraw. The reduction will be based on the proportion of the term remaining according to the percentages shown below:

Percentage of term remaining Percentage of interest paid
0 to less than 20% 80%
20% to less than 40% 60%
40% to less than 60% 40%
60% to less than 80% 20%
80% to less than 100% 10%

Minimum remaining deposit

2.19 If partial prepayment would reduce the balance remaining below $1,000, NAB may repay the whole of the deposit to you as if the maturity date of the term has been reached. Any prepayment by NAB to you will be paid to your nominated NAB account. The interest generated on the deposit may be reduced on the prepayment according to clause 2.18.

Maturity

2.20 At maturity of a term, you may ask NAB for the deposit to be treated as follows from the date of the maturity of that term:

  1. credited to your nominated NAB account; or
  2. invested for a new term with or without additional funds.

If you choose to reinvest the term deposit for a new term (with or without additional funds), before reinvesting you should refer to the interest rates advertised at the date of reinvestment as NAB changes the term deposit terms which have special rates from time to time. You may choose to change the term or deposit amount in order to take advantage of the special rates available on your maturity date.

2.21 If you ask NAB to reinvest the deposit for a new term NAB may accept or reject your request on such terms and conditions as it determines including (without limitation) requiring you to maintain a higher minimum deposit or a longer term or both. Such acceptance is effective from the date of maturity of the term that has ended.

2.22 If you do not make a request in accordance with clause 2.20 before the maturity of a term, at the maturity of that term NAB will reinvest the deposit for a new term the same length as the term that has ended, at the interest rate applicable at the date of the reinvestment, and otherwise on the same terms and conditions except to the extent determined by NAB. The new maturity date will be the date of the end of the new term.

For any reinvestment of your term deposit for a new term you may request changes to your term deposit term, deposit amount and for deposits of at least $5,000 with a deposit term of one year or more, the interest frequency of your term deposit, up to seven calendar days after the commencement of the new term.

3 PayID, Osko and New Payments Platform

The terms in this clause 3 apply to any NAB Term Deposit referred to in these terms and conditions.

Important: New Payments Platform and PayID features for Term Deposits are expected to be available late 2018. For current available payment methods, please visit nab.com.au/termdeposits

3.1 About PayID

3.1.1 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.

3.1.2 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’).

3.1.3 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.

3.1.4 Where your account is held in joint names, each account holder can link a PayID to the account.

3.1.5 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.

3.2 Your PayID

3.2.1 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;

(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 to 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.

3.2.2 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.

3.2.3 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.

3.2.4 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 eligible 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.

3.2.5 Maintaining PayID 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.

3.2.6 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.

3.2.7 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 do so by law or by the operator of the New Payments Platform.

c) We will automatically close your PayID if the Linked Account for that PayID is closed.

3.2.8 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.

3.3 Making Payments to a PayID

3.3.1 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.

3.3.2 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.

3.3.3 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.

3.4 Osko

3.4.1 About Osko

a) We subscribe to Osko under the Bpay Scheme.

b) You can receive Osko 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.

3.4.2 Payments

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 but is capable of accepting other types of NPP ayments, 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.

3.4.3 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.

3.4.4 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.

3.4.5 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.

3.4.6 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 ableto 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.

3.5 Indemnity

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

a) if NAB refuses to allow payment of a cheque or direct debit in good faith in the ordinary course of business; or

b) if a stop payment request is given too late to enable payment to be stopped; or

c) 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

d) 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.

13 Liability for unauthorised transactions provisions for all personal EFT transactions

13.1 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.

13.2 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.

13.3 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 13.4, 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 (1) and (2) above, for losses arising from unauthorised transactions the accountholder will not be liable to pay:

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

Where the authentication service and/or password was required to perform the unauthorised transaction(s) and neither paragraph (1) nor (2) applies, the accountholder is liable for the lesser of:

  • $150;
  • 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
  • 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 one day which exceeds any applicable daily transaction or other periodic transaction limit(s)).

13.4 User's responsibilities under the ePayments Code

  1. where NAB provides the user with an authentication service and/or password the user must not:
    • voluntarily disclose the authentication service and/or password to anyone including a family member or friend, except when you are creating an authorised user;
    • act with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of the authentication service and/or password; and
    • record the password without making any reasonable attempt to protect the security of the password record on the one 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:
    • a numeric code which represents the user's birth date; or
    • 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.

13.5 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.

13.6 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.

14 Allocation of liabilities for business EFT transactions

14.1 You are not liable for any losses:

  1. where it is clear that a user has not contributed to those losses;
  2. that are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of NAB's employees or agents;
  3. resulting from unauthorised transactions occurring after you notify NAB that a user's password has become known to someone else or the user's authentication service has been compromised.

14.2 Where it is unclear whether or not a user has contributed to the losses resulting from unauthorised transactions on an account using the service, you are only liable to pay up to $150.

14.3 Where it is clear that a user has contributed to the losses because a user has failed to comply with clause 22 or you unreasonably delay notifying NAB under clause 24.5, then you are liable for those losses except for that portion of the losses incurred which exceed the balance of your account(s) (including any prearranged credit facility) or that portion of the losses incurred which exceed the total amount you are able to withdraw from your account(s) on the days the unauthorised use took place.

14.4 In the absence of a breach of duty or obligation owed to you, NAB is not liable for any loss or damage caused directly or indirectly to a user by:

  1. any breakdown or interruption in the service due to circumstances beyond NAB's control;
  2. any corruption of data and any breakdown, interruption or errors caused to a user's computer or computing equipment as a result of using the service or as a result of software being downloaded to a user's computer for the purposes of the service;
  3. intermittent interruptions to the service from time to time;
  4. any delays or errors in the execution of any transaction or instruction in respect of your account because of any breakdown or interruption in the service due to circumstances beyond its control;
  5. a party to a payment instruction made by a user not receiving funds because of a problem with the information provided by the user (e.g. a user provides NAB with the wrong account number);
  6. any delays or errors by other parties (e.g. the failure of a financial institution to credit or debit your account in a timely manner); or
  7. any refusal by a party to a payment instruction to accept, or acknowledge receipt of, the funds the subject of that payment instruction.

21 User authentication

When NAB receives an instruction from a user to make payment to a third party account (including a BPAY Payment) and the user has user authentication, NAB will require the user to provide the identifier generated by NAB in accordance with user authentication. This requirement is in addition to any password or other information a user must give to NAB when providing an instruction using the service. The user should contact NAB Internet Banking Support in the event NAB does not accept any instruction using the user authentication identifier. Provision of this identifier does not alter your responsibility for the transaction.

25A 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.

25A.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 2265); 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.

25A.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 25A.2 (2).

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

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 6 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 25A.2 including the obligations to return funds in your account to the Sending ADI where applicable.

33 Bpay Payments terms and conditions (excluding Osko)

33.1 Bpay Scheme

NAB is a member of the Bpay Scheme. The Bpay Scheme is:

a) an electronic payments scheme through which a user with Bpay access, can request NAB to make payments (Bpay Payments) to participating organisations (‘billers’) who tell you that you can make payments to them through the Bpay Scheme (Bpay Payments);

b) a scheme through which you can receive or access bills or statements electronically (Bpay View) from participating billers nominated by;

(i) receiving an email sent to you whenever a bill or statement is received by us which

(ii) directs you to link to the service via nab.com.au; or

(iii) accessing the service via nab.com.au

NAB will tell you if NAB is no longer a member of the Bpay Scheme.

When a user tells NAB to make a Bpay Payment, the user must give NAB the required information specified in clause 59.4. NAB will then debit the specified account with the amount of that Bpay Payment.

33.2 How to use the Bpay Scheme

(a) A Bpay Payment can be made from any account provided:

(i) NAB will allow transfers from the account;

(ii) there are sufficient funds or credit available in the account to meet the value of the Bpay Payment; and

(iii) the relevant biller agrees to accept the account.

(b) When a credit card is used to pay a bill through the Bpay Scheme, NAB treats that payment as a credit card purchase transaction.

(c) 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.

33.3 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.

33.4 Information you must give NAB

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

(a) enter the correct NAB ID and password;

(b) enter and select the appropriate biller code;

(c) select the appropriate ‘from’ account;

(d) enter the customer reference number;

(e) enter the amount to be paid; and

(f) 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.

33.5 Payments

(a) NAB will not accept your instructions to stop a Bpay Payment once instructed to make that Bpay Payment.

(b) 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.

(c) 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:

(i) 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

(ii) 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.

(d) A delay might occur in the processing of a Bpay Payment where:

(i) there is a public or bank holiday on the day after NAB is told to make a Bpay Payment;

(ii) 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;

(iii) another financial institution participating in the Bpay Scheme does not comply with its obligations under the Bpay Scheme; or

(iv) a biller fails to comply with its obligations under the Bpay Scheme.

(e) While it is expected that any delay in processing for any reason set out in clause 33.5(d) will not continue for more than one banking day, any such delay may continue for a longer period.

(f) 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:

(i) 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.

(ii) 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.

33.6 Liability for mistaken payments, unauthorised transactions and fraud

(a) 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:

(i) the amount of that unauthorised or fraudulent payment; and

(ii) 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.

(b) 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:

(i) becomes aware of any delays or mistakes in processing Bpay Payments;

(ii) did not authorise a Bpay Payment that has been made from your account; or

(iii) 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.

(c) 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.

(d) 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:

(i) NAB cannot recover within 20 banking days of NAB attempting to do so that amount from the person who received it; and

(ii) 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.

(e) 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.

(f) 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).

(i) 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 from 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.

(g) 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.

33.7 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.

33.8 Bpay payment cut-off times

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

(a) NAB Telephone Banking cut-off times 6.30pm Australian Eastern Standard Time or Australian Eastern Standard Summer Time in Sydney (whichever is applicable).

(b) 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.

33.9 When a biller cannot process a payment

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

(a) advise you of this;

(b) credit your account with the amount of the Bpay Payment; and

(c) take all reasonable steps to assist in making the Bpay Payment as quickly as possible.

33.10 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:

(a) there is no breach of a legal duty of care owed to you by NAB or by any of its employees or agents; or

(b) 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.

Sharing with MLC Limited
NAB acts for MLC Limited ABN 90 000 000 402 (described as MLC Life Insurance) in distributing their life insurance products. MLC Limited is no longer part of the NAB Group of companies.

Sharing at your request
We may need to share your personal information with your representative or any person acting on your behalf (for example, financial advisers, lawyers, settlement agents, accountants, executors, administrators, trustees, guardians, brokers or auditors) and your referee such as your employer (to confirm details about 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.

  • authorised representatives of the NAB Group who sell products or services on our behalf;

  • 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;

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.

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.your representatives, or advisors.

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.
