How term deposits work

If you’re planning a major business purchase or have received a lump sum of money you’re keen to put away, a term deposit might be suitable for you.

It can be an ideal way to save for a specific goal, as it enables you to invest and get a guaranteed return based on the amount you invest and the interest rate on the day you open your term deposit until the day it matures.

Leaving your money in a transaction account generally earns you little or no interest. You may also be tempted to spend it. Instead, consider putting those funds away for a set period of your choice that pays you a guaranteed return at the end.

Whether you want to purchase a new asset for your business or have the peace of mind you have cash stored away for future opportunities, a term deposit could help you achieve your goals faster.

It's important to think carefully when choosing your term duration as you need to provide 31 days' notice1 if you want to access the money earlier than the selected term(costs apply to break your term deposit early). If you choose to continue with your term deposit once it matures (rolling over), the interest rate on the day the roll-over occurs will apply, this may be  lower, the same as or higher than the interest rate from your initial term. Talk to a financial adviser to see what kind of saving strategy works best for your business.

No account-keeping fees apply to AMP Bank’s Term Deposits. Instead you will earn interest paid at interims you select or on maturity, depending on the term you choose for your term deposit. You may open as many term deposits as you like each with a different term or invested amount. You will receive your interest earnings at the end of the term or, if you would like to be paid more frequently, at a slightly lower rate on terms of one year or more. You can receive those earnings every month, every three months or every six months instead of annually. For example, here are the interest payment options on terms of one year or more:

Interest rate payment frequency
Interest rate conditions
Every month Interest rates for monthly interest payments are 0.20% pa less than the standard rates above 
Every three months Interest rates for three-monthly interest payments are 0.10% pa less than the standard rates above
Every six months Interest rates for six-monthly interest payments are 0.05% pa less than the standard rates above


(i) Special Offer only. Other bonus margins cannot be applied to this rate.
(ii) Only available where interest is paid electronically into a nominated account with AMP Bank or another financial institution and no bank cheque is issued. Where interest is paid annually, the first interest payment is made after 12 months and the second interest payment is made at maturity.
(iii) Quarterly and half-yearly interest payment options are not available.
(iv) These rates apply to Direct customers (those who have applied for the product directly through AMP Bank) only. If you acquired the product through an intermediary, please contact your intermediary for current interest rates. 
(v) Not available for new applicants

For full details, please read the Deposit products fees and charges guide.


Changes to interest adjustment for early withdrawal
