How it works

How an offset facility works

An offset facility is used to reduce (or offset) the amount of interest you pay on your home loan. We offer an offset facility in connection with most of our home loans1

Our variable home loans may entitle you to a full offset facility, where our fixed home loans may entitle you to a partial offset facility

The balance of the transaction account with an offset facility is calculated daily. The home loan interest calculation works as follows:

Full offset

In calculating the interest payable on your loan account, your loan account balance is fully offset by the balance of your linked Everyday Account.

This means that you only pay interest on the difference between your loan balance and your offset account balance (your linked Everyday Account).

Partial offset

The balance of your linked Everyday Account helps to determine the interest payable on your home loan.

A portion of your home loan account that is equal to the balance of your linked Everyday Account is charged interest at a reduced rate (currently 2.25% p.a.), while the remaining balance of your home loan account is charged at the regular (full) home loan rate.

An example

Full vs Partial

The example below helps demonstrate the difference between full and partial offset.

Loan amount is $300,000.

Loan interest rate: 5.00%

Partial offset rate:  2.25% p.a.

Transaction account with an offset facility balance: $10,000

Full offset

Discount offset loan rate: 0%

Interest charged first year (no offset): $300,000 x 5.00% = $15,000

Interest charged first year (with full offset): ($300,000 - $10,000) x 5.00% = ($290,000 x 5.00%) = $14,500

$15,000 - $14,500 = $500

Interest saved with full offset over year = $500

Partial offset

Discounted offset loan rate: 2.25% p.a.

Interest charged first year (no offset): $300,000 x 5.00% = $15,000

Interest charged first year (with partial offset): ($10,000 x 2.25%) + ($290,000 x 5.00%) = $225 + $14,500 = $14,725

$15,000 - $14,725 = $275

Interest saved with partial offset over year = $275
