We’re simplifying home loan fees and rates for accounts BSB starting with 183. You’ll receive a letter notifying you of the changes to our fees and reference rates.
What’s a reference rate?
The reference rate is the standard rate for your product. It is a benchmark rate or ‘base rate’ in our systems that is associated with each different type of loan and is the same for every customer.
The interest rate you are charged is calculated by subtracting your agreed discount from your reference rate. For example, if the reference rate for your home loan is 6% p.a. and your agreed discount is 2% p.a. then your interest rate is 4% p.a.
While we’re making changes to reference rates to help us serve our customers better, it won’t change your agreed discount or the amount of interest you pay on your home loan.
