What is an offset account

An offset account is a transaction or everyday banking account that is linked to your home loan. Every dollar you have in that account 'offsets' the balance of your loan – reducing the amount of interest you pay every month. Because these savings add up over time, you can also use this 'extra' money to pay your loan off faster.

Not all offset accounts are the same, so make sure you check the details. Look for: 

  • a 100 per cent (full) offset account, rather than a partial offset
  • easy access to your offset funds
  • no balance limit or penalties for withdrawal.

A Macquarie home loan can be tailored to have multiple offset accounts linked to one loan, which can help if you're saving for a few big things (like another property, a holiday, a wedding or a new car).

 

How can I save with an offset account

You can reduce the amount of interest you’re charged on your variable home loan by having your additional funds in an offset account. The money in your offset account is offset daily against the balance of the linked variable loan account, and this can reduce the daily interest charged on the loan account. 

For example, if you have $100,000 in your offset account and the balance of the linked variable loan account is $400,000, you’ll only be charged interest on $300,000.

 

What if you need to use that $100,000 for an emergency? Well, you can – because an offset account is just like an everyday banking account. You can access your extra funds at any time, although you'll reduce the amount of interest you're saving if you do.

How to get the most from your offset account

Combine your offset with credit card payments

Packaging a credit card1 with your home loan gives you the flexibility to pay for everyday items by credit card, and keep your money in your offset account for longer, further reducing the interest you pay. However, it's important to pay off the balance of your credit card in full each month to keep your savings on track.
