Offset Transaction Account

What is an offset account?

An offset account can be used as an everyday bank account and is powerful way to save on interest. When linked to your eligible Bankwest home loan product the credit balance of the offset account will help reduce the interest charged on your loan. This might mean that you can pay off your home loan sooner.

For example, if you have a Bankwest Home Loan with $200,000 owing and an Offset Transaction Account with a credit balance of $20,000 and 100% offset, you will only pay interest on your home loan on a balance of $180,000.

You don’t need to keep a huge amount in your offset account to make it work. An easy and effective way to start is to have your salary directly credited into your offset account.
