1.7. There is no minimum account balance required to maintain an account. However, where an account has been opened without you depositing any amount (that is, with a zero balance) and you do not operate your account within 180 days of opening, we may close the account without giving you notice.
2.1. We require identification information for all relevant parties as required by law. This will include information such as name, residential address and date of birth. We may also require other information such as information about your activities and reason for opening an account in Australia.
3.1. We may, and you consent to us doing so, seek verification of your identification and identification documents from independent sources and/or third party service providers.
3.2. We will keep copies of all documents provided by you and will disclose or provide copies of your identification documents to third party bodies as required by law.
3.3. We may request, and you must provide, further documentary evidence of your identity as we deem necessary to confirm your identity.
3.4. We may request that you produce, and you must provide in person if necessary, the original and/or certified true copies of all documentary evidence confirming your identity.
4. Inability to confirm identity
4.1. In the event that we are unable to properly confirm your identity, we may at our sole discretion, reject your application, suspend the operation of your account, refuse transactions and/or place a freeze on your funds until such time as your identity can be confirmed.
5. Additional Information and use of account
5.1. We may request, and you must provide, any other additional information we deem necessary in relation to your identity, personal affairs, business dealings and/or the purpose of your relationship with us. In the event you refuse or fail to provide us with information we have reasonably requested, we may at our sole discretion, reject your application, suspend the operation of your account, refuse transactions and/or place a freeze on your funds until such time as the information is provided.

6. Payment Facilities
6.1. Depending on the type of account you hold with us, you may be able to gain access to one or more payment facilities. The payment facilities that are currently available with each type of account are set out in the Key Features Table.
7. Deposits and Withdrawals
7.1. You may make deposits to your account by:
- arranging an automatic deposit of your salary or other income or amounts to be paid directly into your account using the BSB and account number for your account; or
- transferring funds electronically into your account from another financial institution account using the BSB and account number for your account.
Some of the above methods for deposits may not be accessible by you when you are outside of Australia.
7.2. The proceeds of a deposit may not be available for up to 5 business days after the deposit is made. International deposits may be subject to extended clearance times.
7.3. You cannot deposit cash (physical currency), cheques or mail orders into your account.
7.4. You may make withdrawals from your account in the following ways:
- if your account is linked to a card, using the card (including in a digital wallet):
- at an ATM;
- via EFTPOS terminals;
- by transferring funds electronically in the UP app using Pay Anyone or BPAY
- using an Automatic Payment.
You cannot make cash or other withdrawals from your account in a bank branch except by using a card at an ATM.
Also, some of the above methods for withdrawals may not be accessible by you when you are outside of Australia.
7.5. We can at our discretion impose a limit on the amount you can withdraw in cash from an ATM or via an EFTPOS terminal. Our current default for maximum daily withdrawal limit for transactions conducted using a PIN in conjunction with a card is $1000 (for CHQ/SAV purchases). This amount may be varied for customers upon application and approval. We may vary the default amount of this limit or any other limit we impose from time to time. We may also limit the way in which money is dispensed.
For example, if you want to withdraw $400 (and that amount is not in excess of the maximum daily withdrawal limit), the ATM may not pay out on that amount in one transaction. You may receive $300 and then make another withdrawal of $100 as a separate transaction.
7.6. You should ensure that the purchase amount is correct on any electronic equipment you use when you perform a transaction.
7.7. EFTPOS merchants may have other restrictions on the amount of cash that can be withdrawn. Merchants or other institutions may also impose additional restrictions on the use of your card or PIN.

8.1. If the Key Features Table indicates that your account is interest earning, we will pay you interest on the credit balance of your account.
8.2. We may change the interest rate from time to time at our discretion. If any law regulates such a change, we will only make the change to the extent permitted by, and subject to, the requirements of that law. We will give you such notice of a change in the interest rate if we are legally required to do so.
8.3. You can find the current interest rates for your account at any time by visiting our website at Up.com.au.
8.4. We calculate interest by applying the daily percentage rate to the balance of your account (or if it is stepped interest, to the relevant part of your balance) at the end of each day. The daily percentage rate is the relevant interest rate divided by 365, or in a leap year, 366.
8.5. The type of account you have will determine when interest is credited to your account. The Key Features Table sets out when interest is credited.
9. Transaction Processing
9.1. We may assign any date we reasonably consider appropriate to a debit or credit to your account, except that, in the case of a debit, the date must not be earlier than the date on which the relevant transaction occurs. However, we will credit payments to your account as soon as practicable after we receive them. This is not necessarily the same day that you make the payment. We give effect to the debit or credit based upon the date assigned to it by us.
9.2. We may subsequently adjust debits and credits to your account so as to accurately reflect the legal obligations of you and us, for example, because of an error. If we do this, we may make consequential changes, including to interest.
For example: If a payment or deposit is made into your account in error, we may withdraw that payment or deposit from your account without your consent, including any interest paid into your account on that payment or deposit. If you have spent those funds you will be required to repay them or your account may be overdrawn.
9.3 We may reject, decline, fail to authorise, or delay any transaction to or from your account or, in the case of a credit to your account, delay making the funds available to you where we consider it reasonable to do so. Without limitation, this includes where:
- we reasonably believe we are required to do so in order to comply with any applicable laws (including any laws relating to anti-money laundering or sanctions) or under the rules, regulations and procedures that apply to the payment system the transaction was processed through;
- you fail to comply with any of your obligations under these terms and conditions; or
- we consider it necessary or desirable to do so to enable us to review or investigate the transaction for any fraudulent, illegal or improper activity or for compliance with any applicable sanctions.
We are not liable to you for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of us rejecting, declining, failing to authorise or delaying any transaction to or from your account or any delay in funds being made available to you.
10. Overdrawn accounts
10.1. You must keep a credit balance in your account at all times and must not overdraw your account or use a payment facility or request a payment service which could overdraw your account.
10.2. If you do overdraw your account in breach of these terms and conditions:
- we may debit the overdrawn amount to your account;

10.4. We do not agree to provide you with credit merely because we debit an amount to your account that causes it to be overdrawn.
10.5. If you are the recipient of Centrelink benefits we will act in accordance with our obligations under the Code of Operation for Department of Human Services and Department of Veterans' Affairs Direct Credit Payments when exercising our rights in relation to your overdrawn account, for example, where we combine accounts. In particular unless otherwise agreed, we will allow you to access up to 90% of your future Centrelink benefits until the account is no longer overdrawn.
11. Account Combination
You agree that we may combine the balances of two or more of your accounts, including accounts you have with us that are not the subject of these terms and conditions. For example, we may do this if one of your accounts is overdrawn or in debit and the other is in credit. In this situation the credit in one account would be used to reduce the debit balance in the other account. We will promptly inform you if we combine your accounts. We need not notify you in advance.
12. Statements and Confirmation of Transactions
12.1 We will issue you with a statement of account at least once every 6 months.

13.3. If you misplace any of your account records or need us to provide you with information about any of your transactions, such as interest payments for tax purposes, we can help by conducting a search of our records.

- If we are unable to resolve the complaint within 45 days, we will notify you of this fact, inform you of the reasons for the delay, provide you with monthly updates on the progress of your complaint and specify a date by which a decision can reasonably be expected (unless we are waiting for a response from you and we have told you that we require that response);
- when we have completed our investigation of your complaint, we will promptly advise you of the outcome of that investigation, the reasons for that outcome including references to relevant clauses of the ePayments Code and, except where the complaint has been resolved completely in your favour, we will inform you of any further action you can take under the ePayments Code. Our advice will be in writing unless we are able to resolve the matter immediately to the satisfaction of both you and us;
- if on completion of our investigation we decide that your account has not been incorrectly debited or credited, or in the case of unauthorised transactions, that you have contributed to at least part of the loss occasioned by the unauthorised use, we will supply you with copies of any documents or other evidence relevant to the outcome of our investigation, including information about any logs or audit trails relating to the transaction and advise you whether there was any system or equipment malfunction at the time of the transaction (for example, if you don’t protect your mobile phone by using a passcode or biometric lock it could contribute to the chance of unauthorised transactions);
- if we conclude as a result of our investigation that your account has been incorrectly debited or credited we will promptly make adjustments to your account (including making adjustments to interest and charges) and notify you in writing of the amount by which your account has been debited or credited as a result;
- if we decide to resolve your complaint in your favour, we may adjust your account accordingly within 7 business days of receiving the complaint and provide the information required by paragraph b and close the investigation. When we choose this course of action we are not required to comply with clause 21.5;
- if we fail to observe the appropriate allocation of liability in accordance with the relevant clauses of the ePayments Code or fail to explain the reasons of any findings that you are liable by reference to relevant aspects of those paragraphs, or in any material respect we fail to observe the complaint investigation and resolution procedures set out in this clause or as required by the ePayments Code, and where such failure has contributed to a decision by us against you or delayed the resolution of your complaint, we may accept full or partial liability for the amount of the transaction which is the subject of your complaint.

Section E: Use and security of your card, biometric identification, passcode and PIN
39. Protecting your card, biometric identification, passcode and PIN
39.1. The security of your card, biometric identification, passcode and PIN is very important. You may be liable for unauthorised transactions which you contribute to by not keeping your card, biometric identification, passcode and PIN secure. Your liability is governed by clause 44.
39.2. You must ensure that you:
- keep your card, recovery code, passcode and PIN secure and protected;
- do not tell anyone your PIN, passcode or recovery code;
- do not record your PIN, passcode or recovery code in electronic or written form.
- do not select a passcode or PIN that is easily identified with you (e.g. your date of birth, your name or part of it or your phone number);
- do not select a passcode or PIN that is a common or easily guessed combination (e.g. repeated or consecutive numbers such as 5555 or 1234);
- do not provide your PIN, recovery code, passcode or card to any person (including a family member or a friend);
- do not allow any unauthorised person to observe or hear your recovery code, PIN or passcode;
- do not allow any unauthorised person to enrol or register their biometric information on a device in which the Up app is installed and not install or use the Up app on any device on which another person has enrolled or registered their biometric information;
- only sign in to or use the Up app on a device which is and remains in your possession and is secured in such a manner that it is only accessible by you, such as with a personal identification number or passcode that only you know, or with a biometric system such as a fingerprint or facial recognition system that only has your biometric information enrolled or registered in it.
39.3. If you have a card you must also ensure that you:
- sign your card as soon as you receive it;
- keep your card in a safe place;
- check regularly that you have your card in your possession;
- do not record your PIN on your card or carry any record of your PIN in an undisguised form with the card. (Merely placing a couple of digits at the beginning or end of your PIN disguising it as a telephone number or birth date is not sufficient);
- do not let anyone use your card. You may be legally liable if someone else uses your card and PIN, with or without your permission;
- destroy expired cards; and
- collect your card from the ATM after completing a transaction.
39.4. The following ways of recording a PIN are often deciphered by thieves and it is strongly recommended that these ways are not used for recording PIN's:
- recording the PIN as a series of numbers with any of them marked, circled or highlighted to indicate the PIN;
- recording the PIN with surrounding information that makes it stand out from its context. For instance, a PIN recorded as a 4 or 6 digit telephone number where all other numbers are 8 digits;
- recording the PIN as a string of digits in isolation from other information; and
- recording the PIN as a birth date, postcode or telephone number without additional features of disguise.
39.5. A reasonable attempt must be made to protect the security of a PIN. Making any reasonable attempt to disguise the PIN within the record, or prevent unauthorised access to the PIN record, includes but is not limited to:
- hiding or disguising the PIN record among other records,
- hiding or disguising the PIN in a place where a PIN would not be expected to be found,
- keeping a record of the PIN in a securely locked container, or
- preventing unauthorised access to an electronically stored record of the PIN.
39.6. You must not act with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of your PIN where extreme carelessness means a degree of carelessness that greatly exceeds what would normally be considered careless behavior. An example of extreme carelessness is storing your PIN in an unprotected computer or diary under the heading PIN.
40. Loss, theft and unauthorised use of your card, device, passcode, recovery code or PIN
40.1. You must notify us immediately if:
- any record you may have of your PIN, recovery code or passcode is lost or stolen;
- someone has stolen your card;
- you have lost your card;
- you become aware or suspect another person knows your recovery code, PIN or passcode or has used your recovery code, PIN or passcode without your authority;
- someone steals your device;
- you lose your device;
- you change or otherwise lose access to or the right to use your mobile phone number; or
- the biometric identification method on your device becomes compromised or another person has registered their biometric details on your device.
Safeguarding payment instruments
You should safeguard payment instruments such as card and registered device. Subject to clauses 40, 41 and 42 you will be liable for all transactions arising from the use of a payment instrument until you have advised us of its loss, theft or misuse. If any of the above payment instruments are lost, stolen or misused, you should contact us immediately.
Lost and Stolen cards:
In Australia contact us on 1300 002 258
Overseas contact us on +61 1300 002 258
Alternatively, phone +1 636 722 7111 reverse charges (this service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week), or visit the Mastercard International website at mastercard.com to obtain a toll free number for the country you are travelling in.
40.2. Any unreasonable delay in notifying us may expose you to liability for losses incurred as a result of unauthorised access or transactions. Liability for unauthorised transactions is set out in clause 44.
40.3. You are not liable for any unauthorised transactions which could have been prevented during any period of unavailability of all these contact points as long as you notify us within a reasonable time of a contact point becoming available.
40.4. When you report the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your card, PIN or passcode, you will be given a notification number which you should retain as evidence of the date and time of your report.
40.5. You should confirm any verbal notification via the Up app as soon as possible.
40.6. If you find your card after reporting it lost or stolen, cut it up and do not attempt to use it. We cancel all cards reported lost or stolen.
40.7. You can arrange for an emergency replacement card if required, at the time of reporting your card lost or stolen.
41. Your Liability – Non PIN generated transactions
41.1. You are not liable for any transaction performed without your permission, unless you have contributed to the loss by:
- letting someone else use your card; or
- unreasonably delaying notifying us of the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your card.
41.2. If you did either of these things, we may hold you liable for all transactions carried out using your card up to the time you notify us of the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your card.
41.3. A disputed transaction may include:
- An unauthorised transaction – a transaction which you believe was not authorised by use of the card or account by you. This includes any unauthorised telephone, internet or mail orders or any other unauthorised transactions on your account.
- General dispute – a transaction which you wish to dispute. This may include a transaction which has been processed to your account more than once, or a transaction which was authorised by the use of your card or account which you wish to dispute.
41.4. Despite notifying us of a disputed transaction, you remain liable for any purchase made by you.
41.5. Mastercard have a dispute resolution process that is contained in the operating rule of the card scheme. This process sets out the specific circumstances and timeframes in which a member of the scheme (e.g. a bank) can claim a refund in connection with a disputed transaction on a cardholder's behalf. This is referred to as a ‘chargeback right’. We will claim a chargeback right where one exists and you have disputed the transaction within the required time frame. We will claim the chargeback for the most appropriate reason. Our ability to investigate any disputed transaction on your account, and subsequently process a chargeback is restricted by the time limits imposed under the operating rules of the card scheme. The timeframes for us to process a chargeback (where a chargeback right exists) vary between 45 days and 120 days, depending on the type of transaction. We will not accept a refusal of a chargeback by a merchant’s financial institution unless it is consistent with card scheme rules.
42. Electronic transactions
42.1. If the ePayments Code is applicable to a disputed transaction, the timeframes as specified in clause 41.5 may not apply in certain circumstances.
42.2. Our ability to dispute a transaction on your behalf (where a chargeback right exists) may be lost if you do not notify us within the required timeframes. For this reason, it is in your interest to report any disputed transaction to us immediately and certainly no later than the due date shown on the statement of account. Where it can be shown that you have unreasonably delayed notifying us, you may be liable for the loss on any disputed transaction.
42.3. If a dispute is withdrawn or resolved in favour of the merchant, a voucher retrieval fee may apply.
42.4. Where a dispute is resolved in your favour, we will make the necessary adjustments to any interest and fees charged as a result of your dispute.
To report an unauthorised transaction, please contact us via our contact methods.
Section F: EFT Transactions – PIN, Passcode and mobile number generated transactions
We warrant that we will comply with the requirements of the ePayments Code.
43. Liability for authorised transactions
43.1. You are responsible for all transactions carried out using a PIN, or your registered mobile number and passcode, by you or by anyone else with your knowledge and consent.
43.2. If the Up app malfunctions after having accepted your instructions or fails to complete the transaction in accordance with your instructions resulting in loss to you of some or all of the amount of a transaction, we will correct that loss by making any necessary adjustments to your account, including an adjustment of any interest or fee. If you consider that you have incurred additional losses as a consequence of the malfunction you may make a claim for any such loss.
43.3. If you are aware or should have been aware that the Up app was unavailable for use or was malfunctioning, then our responsibility will be limited to the correction of errors in your account and the refund of any fee imposed as a result.
43.4. We may withdraw electronic access to your account without prior notice to you in the event of any Up app malfunction.
44. Liability for unauthorised transactions
44.1. You will not be liable for losses arising out of:
- unauthorised transactions where it is clear that you have not contributed to the loss;
- the fraudulent or negligent conduct of our employees or agents or companies involved in networking arrangements or of merchants who are linked to the EFT system or their agents or employees;
- any component of an access method that is forged, faulty, expired or cancelled;
- unauthorised transactions occurring after you have notified us as required by these terms and conditions of the loss, theft or misuse of a card, forming part of an access method or that the security of a PIN, your passcode or mobile number has been breached;
- transactions which require the use of a card or PIN linked to your account, and that occurred before you received that card or PIN from us (including a reissued or replacement card or PIN);
- the same transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to the same account.
44.2. You are liable where we can prove on the balance of probability that you have contributed to the losses in any of the following ways:
- through your fraud;
- by you voluntarily disclosing the recovery code, PIN or your passcode to anyone, including a family member or friend;
- by keeping a record of the PIN (without making any reasonable attempt to disguise the PIN or prevent unauthorised access to the PIN) on the one article, or on several articles, carried with the card, so that they are liable to loss or theft simultaneously with the card;
- by keeping a record of your PIN or passcode (without making any reasonable attempt to protect the security of the records) on the one article, or on several articles so that they are liable to loss or theft simultaneously;
- where we permit you to select or change a PIN or passcode, by selecting numbers which represent your birth date or letters which are a recognisable part of your name, if immediately before this was done we specifically warned you not to do so and that you might incur liability by doing so;
- by acting with extreme carelessness in failing to protect the security of the recovery code, PIN or your passcode;
- where the ePayments Code requires, that the recording or voluntary disclosure of one or more but not all of the codes forming part of the access method was the dominant contributing cause of the loss;
- by leaving a card in an ATM which incorporates reasonable safety standards that mitigate the risk of a card being left in the ATM.
In these cases, you will be liable for the actual losses which happened before you notified us that the card had been misused, lost or stolen or that the security of an access method had been breached, but you will not be liable for any of the following amounts:
- that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceed the applicable daily withdrawal limits;
- that portion of the losses incurred in a period which exceeds any other periodic withdrawal limits applicable to that period;
- that portion of the total losses incurred on any account which exceeds the balance of that account (including any prearranged credit);
- all losses incurred on any accounts which we and you had not agreed could be accessed using the access method;
- any losses incurred as a result of conduct we expressly authorised you to engage in;
- any losses incurred as a result of you disclosing, recording or storing a recovery code, PIN or passcode in a way that is required for the purposes of using a service such as a password manager, or storing your codes in an electronic wallet on your computer which is expressly or implicitly promoted, endorsed or authorised by us.
44.3. Where we can prove on the balance of probability that you have contributed to the losses by unreasonably delaying notification after becoming aware of the misuse, loss or theft of a card forming part of the access method, or that the security of all the codes forming part of the access method has been breached, you are liable for the actual losses which occur between when you became aware (or should reasonably have become aware in the case of a lost or stolen card) and when we were actually notified, but you are not liable for any of the following amounts:
- that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceed any applicable daily withdrawal limits;
- that portion of the losses incurred in a period which exceeds any other periodic withdrawal limits applicable to that period;
- that portion of the total losses incurred on any account which exceeds the balance of that account;
- all losses incurred on any accounts which you and we had not agreed could be accessed using the access method.
44.4. Where we cannot prove you were liable under clauses 44.2 or 44.3 and a PIN or passcode was required to perform the unauthorised transaction, you will be liable for the least of:
- the balance of those accounts (including any prearranged credit) which you and we have agreed may be accessed using the access method;
- the actual loss at the time we were notified (where relevant) that the card has been misused, lost or stolen or that the security of the codes forming part of the access method has been breached (excluding that portion of the losses incurred on any one day which exceed any applicable daily withdrawal or other periodical withdrawal limits).
44.5. | You authorise us to debit any amount for which you are liable under this clause 44 to your account.
Section G: BPAY
45. About the BPAY scheme
45.1. This section applies if you ask us to make a BPAY payment on your behalf.
45.2. The BPAY scheme is an electronic payments scheme through which you can ask us to make payments to billers who inform you that you can make BPAY payments to them through the BPAY scheme.
45.3. We are a member of the BPAY scheme and we will inform you if we are no longer a member.
45.4. Access to the Up app is required to make BPAY payments through the BPAY scheme for Up accounts.
45.5. We are not acting as your agent or the agent of the biller when we make a BPAY payment on your behalf.
46. Using the BPAY scheme
46.1. When you tell us to make a BPAY payment, you must provide us with the following information in the Up app:
- the account from which the BPAY payment is to be debited;
- the BPAY biller code of the biller to be paid;
- the amount of the BPAY payment; and
- the biller customer reference number.
46.2. You acknowledge and accept that we are not obliged to effect a BPAY payment if you do not give to us all of the above information or give us inaccurate information.
46.3. We will then debit the account you specify with the amount of that BPAY payment.
46.4. We may decide not to make the BPAY payment if there are insufficient cleared funds in the specified account at the time you have told us to make that payment.
47.1. We may impose restrictions on the accounts from which a BPAY payment may be made or impose limits on the amount of BPAY payments.
47.2. We will not accept an instruction to stop a BPAY payment once you have instructed us to make that BPAY payment except for future dated payments which can be cancelled before the due payment date.
47.3. Billers who participate in the BPAY scheme have agreed that a BPAY payment you make will be treated as received by the biller to whom it is directed:
- on the date that you make that BPAY payment, if you tell us to make the BPAY payment before our payment cut-off time on a business day (for payment cut-off times see clause 65 below);
- on the next business day, if you tell us to make a BPAY payment after our payment cut-off time on a business day or on a non- business day; or
- on the day or next business day, you have nominated for a scheduled payment to take place.
47.4. A delay may occur in the processing of a BPAY payment where:
- there is a public or bank holiday on the day you tell us to make a BPAY payment;
- you tell us to make a BPAY payment either on a day which is not a business day or after our payment cut-off time on a business day;
- another financial institution participating in the BPAY scheme does not comply with its obligations under the BPAY scheme;
- a biller fails to comply with its obligations under the BPAY scheme.
47.5. Although a delay in processing a BPAY payment is not expected to continue for more than one business day, you acknowledge and accept that a delay may continue for a longer period.
47.6. Regardless of when an immediate BPAY payment is made, the account from which you want us to debit the BPAY payment will be debited immediately.
48. If the amount of a payment to a biller is incorrect
48.1. You must ensure that the information in relation to each BPAY payment is correct. If you discover that you have instructed us to make a payment to a biller for an incorrect amount:
- if the amount you instructed us to pay is greater than the required amount, contact the biller for a refund;
- if the amount is less than the required amount, you should make a further BPAY payment for the difference.
49. When a Biller cannot process a payment
49.1. If we are notified that your BPAY payment cannot be processed by a biller, we will notify you and credit your account for the amount of the BPAY payment.
50. Suspension of BPAY
50.1. We may suspend your right to participate in the BPAY service at any time if you are suspected of acting in a fraudulent manner.
51. Cut-off times
51.1. If you instruct us to make a BPAY payment before the time specified below, it will in most cases be treated as having been made on the same day.
Monday – Friday 6:30pm (Victorian Time)
Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays: processed next business day.
51.2. BPAY payments may take longer to be credited to a biller if you tell us to make a BPAY payment on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday or if the biller does not process a payment as soon as they receive its details.
52. Liability for mistaken payments, unauthorised transactions and fraud
52.1. You must notify us immediately if:
- you become aware that you may have made a mistake (except in relation to the BPAY payment amount – see clause 48.1) when instructing us to make a BPAY payment;
- you did not authorise the BPAY payment from your account;
- you believe the BPAY payment was not processed in accordance with your instructions (including delays);
- you think you have been fraudulently induced to make a BPAY payment.
52.2. We will attempt to rectify any such matters in relation to your BPAY payment in the way described in this clause. If a BPAY payment is made on your account without your knowledge or consent, liability for that unauthorised BPAY payment will be determined in accordance with clause 44. Otherwise, except as set out in this clause, we will not be liable for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of using the BPAY scheme.
52.3. If a BPAY payment is made to a person or for an amount which is not in accordance with your instructions (if any), and your account has been debited with the amount of that payment, we will credit that amount to your account. However, if you were responsible for a mistake resulting in that payment and we cannot recover the amount within 20 business days of us attempting to do so from the person who received the amount of that payment, you must pay us that amount and you authorise us to debit that amount from your account.
52.4. If a BPAY payment is made in accordance with a payment direction which appeared to us to be from you or on your behalf but for which you did not give authority, we will credit your account with the amount of that unauthorised payment. However, you must pay us the amount of that unauthorised payment, and you authorise us to debit that amount to your account, if:
- we cannot recover that amount within 20 business days of us attempting to do so from the person who receives it; and
- the payment was made as a result of a payment direction which didn't comply with any requirements we may have for such payments directions.
52.5. If a BPAY payment is induced by the fraud of a person involved in the BPAY scheme, then that person should refund you the amount of the fraud induced payment. However, if that person does not refund the amount of the fraud induced payment, you must bear that loss (and you authorised us to debit that amount of the fraud induced payment to your account) unless some other person involved in the BPAY scheme knew of the fraud or would have detected it with reasonable diligence, in which case we will attempt to obtain a refund for you of the fraud induced payment.
52.6. If a BPAY payment you have made falls with the type described in clause 52.3 and also clause 52.4 or 52.5, then we will apply the principals set out in clause 52.4. If a BPAY payment you have made falls within both the types described in clauses 52.3 and 52.5, then we will apply the principles set out in clause 52.5.
52.7. You indemnify us against any loss or damage we may suffer due to any claims, suits, demands or action of any kind brought against us arising directly or indirectly because you:
- did not observe any of your obligations under these BPAY conditions; or
- acted negligently or fraudulently in connection with the other terms and conditions of your account.
52.8. If you tell us that a BPAY payment made from your account is unauthorised, you must first give us your written consent addressed to the biller who received that BPAY payment, consenting to us obtaining from the biller information about your account with that biller or the BPAY payment, including your customer reference number and such information as we reasonably require to investigate the BPAY payment. We are not obligated to investigate or rectify any BPAY payment if you do not give us this consent. If you do not give us that consent, the biller may not be permitted under law to disclose to us information we need to investigate or rectify that BPAY payment.
52.9. We are not liable for any consequential loss or damage you suffer as a result of using the BPAY scheme, other than loss or damage which is due to our negligence or a breach of any condition or warranty implied by law which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified at all or only to a limited extent.
Section H: Automatic payments
This section applies if you arrange for automatic payments to be made out of your account. Automatic payments are not available on all accounts. The Key Features Table indicates the accounts for which they are available.
53.1. If you give us authority, we can have regular payments made automatically out of your account on pre-set dates, advised by you. This type of payment is called a "direct debit". A direct debit is when a company, organisation or fund, sends direct debits to your account according to an authority which you need to set up through the company, organisation or fund receiving the money, allowing us to make these payments.
54. Arranging an automatic payment
54.1. The biller will supply you with a Direct Debit Request Service Agreement for you to complete and sign to provide them with this authority.
54.2. You must give us the information we require to enable us to make an automatic payment. This information may include the BSB and account numbers, and account name of the accounts from and to which payments are to be made. You must check that all information you give to us is correct (including, but not limited to, the BSB and the account number). We do not check, and are not responsible for checking, that any information you give to us is correct, including whether the BSB and account numbers correspond to the account name which you advise us. You are liable for any payment we carry out in accordance with your instructions.
55. Timing of the automatic payment
55.1. The details regarding timing of the payment will be outlined in the Direct Debit Request Service Agreement your biller has supplied to you.
55.2. You must ensure that you have sufficient cleared funds available in your account from which a payment will be made, to enable that payment to be made. If the payment date falls on a day other than a business day, those funds must be available by 10am (AEST/AEDT) on the previous day.
55.3. If you have insufficient funds in your account, any direct debits may be returned unpaid (dishonoured) to the originating third party.
55.4. A fee may be debited to your account in these circumstances. Current fees and charges are set out in this document.
55.5. If you have insufficient funds in your account on three consecutive payment due dates, the authority will be cancelled and you will be notified via the Up app.
55.6. Subject to these conditions, when you instruct us to make a payment to an account held with another financial institution, we will endeavour to make that payment to the BSB and account number you advise us. If you give us instructions to make a payment on a business day after 10am (AEST/AEDT) on that business day, we may process that payment the following business day.
56.1. To the extent permitted by law and subject to any other provisions of these terms and conditions, we are not liable for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of using the automatic payment facility or any delay, omission or failure in respect of any payment. Without limitation, this includes, if you request us to make a payment to an account held with another financial institution:
- any delay or failure to make a payment which results in a technical failure in the system we use to make a payment from your account with us to another financial institution; and
- any omission, delay or failure on the part of the other financial institution in processing that payment.
56.2. If we debit or credit your account under an automatic payment arrangement we are not acting as your agent or the agent of another person. We are not liable for any loss or damage to you from us not acting as you require.
Section I: Pay Anyone Service
This section applies if you use the Pay Anyone Service. The Key Features Table indicates the accounts for which this is available.
57. About the Pay Anyone Service
The Pay Anyone Service is an online service that allows you to transfer funds directly to accounts at financial institutions within Australia. The transfer may be a once only transfer (either immediate or future date) or you can arrange regular reoccurring transfers.
58. Using the Pay Anyone Service
58.1. When you tell us to make a Pay Anyone transfer, you must provide us with the following information:
- the account from which you want us to debit the Pay Anyone transfer;
- the correct account number of the person or business to whom you wish to transfer funds;
- the correct BSB of the financial institution at which the account to whom you wish to transfer funds is held or a PayID created and linked to the account;
- a reference;
- the amount of the Pay Anyone transfer; and
- when you want the transfer made.
58.2. You acknowledge and accept that we are not obliged to effect a Pay Anyone transfer if you do not give us all of the above information or give us inaccurate information.
58.3. You authorise us to debit the nominated account you specify with the amount of that Pay Anyone transfer(s) you instruct us to make.
Warning: Some banks do not cross check the account number with the account name, which may lead to your payment being placed into the wrong account, if you enter an incorrect BSB or account number. You must ensure that the BSB and account number you give us are correct. We will not be liable for any loss as a result of you entering the wrong BSB or account number.
58.4. Pay Anyone transfers may be processed as a Direct Entry Payment or, once the NPP has been launched, as an Osko Payment.
58.5. We may decide whether to process Pay Anyone transfers you request from your accounts as Direct Entry Payments or Osko Payments in our absolute discretion and you must not assume that Osko Payments will always be available or offered to you.
59.1. We may impose restrictions on the accounts from which a Pay Anyone transfer may be made or impose limits on the amount of Pay Anyone transfers. The default Pay Anyone daily limit is $30,000.
59.2. We may decide not to make any payment if there are insufficient funds available for withdrawal in the specified nominated account to be debited on the due payment date.
59.3. We may decide not to process a future-dated Pay Anyone transfer if you have instructed us to make the transfer using a PayID and, at the relevant transfer time, we become aware that the details registered for that PayID in the NPP Addressing Service have substantially changed since you instructed us or, in the case of recurring payments, since the previous transfer.
59.4. A delay may occur in the processing of a Pay Anyone transfer where:
- there is a public or bank holiday on the day you instruct us to make a Pay Anyone transfer; or
- you instruct us to make a Pay Anyone transfer on a day which is not a business day or after our payment cut-off time on a business day (for payment cut-off times see clause 63).
59.5. Regardless of when an immediate Pay Anyone transfer is made, the account from which you want us to debit the Pay Anyone transfer will be debited immediately.
59.6. Pay Anyone transfers are irrevocable and once you have told us to make a Pay Anyone transfer it cannot be stopped or cancelled. You must therefore take care to ensure all information you give us in relation to a Pay Anyone transfer request is correct and complete.
59.7. Where we process a Pay Anyone transfer as an Osko Payment, the transfer will generally be processed, cleared and settled on a 24/7 near real-time basis.
59.8. We may delay processing a Pay Anyone transfer (including an Osko Payment) for up to 24 hours when you are transferring to a payee account you have not made a Pay Anyone transfer to previously or where the amount of the Pay Anyone transfer is greater than the amount of Pay Anyone transfers you have made to the account previously. We may also delay processing a Pay Anyone transfer as described in clause 9.3.
60. If a transfer amount is incorrect
60.1. You must ensure that the information you give us in relation to each Pay Anyone transfer is correct. If you discover that we have been instructed to make a transfer for an incorrect amount:
- if the amount transferred is greater than the required amount, contact the person or business to whom the funds were transferred to obtain a refund for the excess;
- if the amount transferred is less than the required amount, you can simply make a further Pay Anyone transfer for the difference.
61. Suspension of the Pay Anyone Service
61.1. We may suspend your right to use the Pay Anyone service at any time if you are suspected of acting in a fraudulent or improper manner or we believe doing so is reasonably necessary in order for us to ensure the security or integrity of the Up app, the Pay Anyone service or your account.
62. Limit reductions
62.1. We may reduce your Pay Anyone daily limit if you do not use any or part of your limit over a period of time. We will notify you in writing at least 20 days before taking such action, where we are required to do so under the ePayments Code.
63. Cut-off times
63.1. If you instruct us to transfer funds before the time specified below, the transfer will be processed overnight on that business day. Subject to the financial institution to whom the funds are being transferred, the payment will in most cases settle on the next business day.
Monday – Friday: 7.00pm (AEST/AEDT)
Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays: processed next business day.
63.2. Pay Anyone transfers may take longer to be credited if you tell us to make a Pay Anyone transfer on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday or if the recipient's financial institution does not process the payment as soon as they receive it.
64. Liability for mistaken payments, unauthorised transactions and fraud
64.1. You must notify us immediately:
- if you become aware that you may have made a mistake (except in relation to the Pay Anyone transfer amount - see clause 60 above or paying funds to an Unintended Recipient – see clause 65.1), when instructing us to make a Pay Anyone transfer;
- if you did not authorise the Pay Anyone transfer from your account;
- if you believe a Pay Anyone transfer was not processed in accordance with your instructions (including delays);
- if you think you have been fraudulently induced to make a Pay Anyone transfer.
64.2. We will attempt to rectify any such matters in relation to your Pay Anyone transfer in the way described in this clause. If a Pay Anyone transfer is made on your account without your knowledge or consent, liability for that unauthorised Pay Anyone transfer will be determined in accordance with clause 44. Otherwise, except as set out in this clause 64 we will not be liable for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of using the Pay Anyone Service.
64.3. You indemnify us against any loss or damage we may suffer due to any claims, suits, demands or action of any kind brought against us arising directly or indirectly because you:
- did not observe any of your obligations under the terms and conditions in this section; or
- acted negligently or fraudulently in connection with the other terms and conditions.
64.4. We are not liable for any consequential loss or damage you suffer as a result of using the Pay Anyone Service other than any loss or damage which is due to our negligence or breach of any condition or warranty implied by law which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified at all or only to a limited extent.
65. Mistaken Internet Payments
65.1. In this clause, the following words have these specific meanings:
“Mistaken Internet Payment” means a ‘Mistaken Internet Payment’ under the ePayments Code or a ‘Mistaken Payment’ under the NPP Regulations.
Note: This relates to payments you make to an Unintended Recipient using the Pay Anyone Service where you enter an incorrect BSB or account number. It does not include Misdirected Payment under the NPP Regulations or payments made using BPAY.
“Other ADI” means the authorised deposit-taking institution (as defined in the Banking Act 1959 Cth) of the Unintended Recipient.
“Unintended Recipient” means the recipient of funds as a result of a Mistaken Internet Payment.
65.2. This clause applies where you have made a Mistaken Internet Payment covered by the ePayments Code and the Other ADI subscribes to the ePayment Code or which was processed through NPP.
65.3. If you have made a Mistaken Internet Payment, you must notify us as soon as possible. We will investigate the matter and inform you (in writing) of the outcome within 30 business days from the date you notified us.
65.4. Without the consent of the Unintended Recipient, it may be possible to retrieve the funds from your Mistaken Internet Payment if:
- you reported the Mistaken Internet Payment to us within 7 months;
- we decide that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred;
- the Other ADI decides that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred; and
- the Unintended Recipient has sufficient credit available in their account to retrieve the funds.
Note: If you report the Mistaken Internet Payment after 10 days but before 7 months, the Unintended Recipient will be given an opportunity to establish that they are entitled to the funds.
65.5. With the consent of the Unintended Recipient, it may be possible to retrieve the funds from your Mistaken Internet Payment if:
- both we and the Other ADI decide that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred but the Unintended Recipient does not have sufficient credit in their account;
- both we and the Other ADI decide that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred, but you reported the Mistaken Internet Payment after seven months; or
- the Other ADI decides (in their discretion) to seek the Unintended Recipient’s consent to return the funds even if the Other ADI is not satisfied that a Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred.
65.6. If the Other ADI withdraws funds from the Unintended Recipient’s account, they will return the funds to us. We will then return the funds to you as soon as possible.
65.7. You will be responsible for any of your losses following a Mistaken Internet Payment if:
- both we and the Other ADI decide that no Mistaken Internet Payment has occurred; or
- in certain circumstances, the Unintended Recipient is able to establish that they are entitled to the funds; or
- the consent as described in clause 65.5 is not obtained from the Unintended Recipient.
65.8. You can complain to us about the way your report of a Mistaken Internet Payment is dealt with by contacting us at the Customer Advocate Office on telephone 1300 002 258 from 8:30am – 5.00pm (AEST/AEDT) Monday to Friday.
65.9. If you are not satisfied with the outcome under clause 65.8, you may contact our external dispute resolution scheme. External dispute resolution is a free service established to provide you with an independent mechanism to resolve specific complaints. Our external dispute resolution provider is the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). You can contact the AFCA at:
Australian Financial Complaints Authority
GPO Box 3
Melbourne VIC 3001
Phone: 1800 931 678
65.10. We are not liable for any consequential loss or damage you suffer as a result of using the Pay Anyone facility other than any loss or damage which is due to our negligence or breach of any condition or warranty implied by law which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified at all or only to a limited extent.
65.11. Where you are the recipient of a Mistaken Internet Payment, you authorise us to withdraw the funds relating to that Mistaken Internet Payment from your account if we are required under the ePayment Code to recover those funds from you and return them to the payer's authorised deposit taking institution.
66. Incorrect Account Number
66.1. When we process your Pay Anyone transfer, we process the Pay Anyone transfer based on the BSB and account number you provide.
WARNING: We do not cross check the account number with the account name or reference you provide us.
66.2. If your Pay Anyone transfer is to another financial institution, your Pay Anyone transfer may also be processed on the BSB and account number provided as not all financial institutions cross check account numbers and names.
Example 1: You want to send a Pay Anyone transfer to Mr Citizen’s account, being BSB 001 012 Account Number 123456 however you type in BSB 001 012 Account Number 123465, the payment will be made into account number 123465 instead of Mr Citizen’s account.
Example 2: You want to send a Pay Anyone transfer to Mr Citizen’s account, being BSB 001 012 Account Number 123456 however you type in BSB 001 021 Account Number 123456, the payment will be made into account number 123456 at BSB 001 021 instead of BSB 001 012.
66.3. It is vital that you include the correct account number and BSB.
67.1. In our discretion, we may allow you to create a PayID for your account so that NPP Payments can be made to your account using the PayID instead of the BSB and account number.
67.2. Creating a PayID using your personal details (eg. mobile phone number or email address) is optional. We will not create a PayID for your account using your personal details without your consent.
67.3. We will issue you with an Up generated PayID as part of holding an account with Up, and may disclose it to other Up customers.
Creating a PayID
67.4. You may register and unregister a PayID for your account in the Up application.
67.5. You may only create a PayID for your account if:
- we are able to verify your identity in a manner that is satisfactory to us;
- you own or are authorised to use the PayID;
- the PayID is not likely to be misleading as to who the accountholder for the account is; and
- creating the PayID will not infringe on the intellectual property rights of any person.
67.6. We may refuse to allow you to create a PayID for any reason, including where we have not been able to satisfactorily verify your identity or we are not satisfied that you own or are authorised to use the PayID you are trying to create or we are not satisfied that creating the PayID will not infringe the intellectual property rights of any person.
67.7. By creating a PayID for your account:
- you assure us that you own or are authorised to use the PayID;
- you agree to immediately notify us if any of the information you provide to us when creating the PayID changes or becomes incorrect or misleading;
- you acknowledge that the PayID and information relating to you and the account the PayID is linked to (including the account name, BSB and account number) will be registered in the NPP Addressing Service operated by NPP Australia Limited (not us); and
- you consent to:
- us disclosing your personal information and the other information you provide to us to NPP Australia Limited as necessary to create the PayID in the NPP Addressing Service; and
- third parties, such as NPP Australia Limited and other financial institutions that connect to or use the NPP, collecting, storing, using and disclosing that information (including your name and account details) in accordance with the NPP Regulations and NPP Procedures and as necessary for purposes related to NPP Payments to you or your account. Without limiting the last sentence, you acknowledge that the account name associated with your account, or a summary of it, may be disclosed to any person that initiates a NPP Payment using the PayID.
67.8. The types of PayIDs we allow you to create and link to your account may differ depending on your circumstances and the type of account you have.
67.9. More than one PayID can be created and linked to an account provided that each PayID is unique.
67.10. When creating a PayID we will automatically provision a PayID name that is substantially representative of the account.
Transferring a PayID from or to another account
67.11. With the exception of PayIDs generated by Up (eg. @up.me addresses) you can transfer a PayID created and linked to one account with us or another financial institution to another account with us or another financial institution. However, you cannot transfer a PayID while it is locked (see 67.16 below).
67.12. If you want to transfer a PayID you have created for one account with us to another account with us or another financial institution, you can do so by contacting us and requesting that we transfer the PayID. We will action your request within one business day unless we agree another time period with you. A transfer of your PayID to another institution is completed by that institution.
67.13. If you want to transfer a PayID that has been created and linked to an account at another institution to an account with us, you must first contact the other financial institution to tell them you want to transfer the PayID and then create the PayID with us.
Updating, locking and closing a PayID
67.14. With the exception of PayIDs generated by Up (eg. @up.me addresses) you can request that we update or close a PayID that has been created and linked to your account at any time by contacting us. Generated PayIDs cannot be cancelled or transferred.
67.15. You must promptly notify us if, at any time, you cease to own or be authorised to use a PayID created and linked to your account or if any of the information you give us when the PayID is created changes, and request that we update or close the PayID.
67.16. We will action a request from you to update or close a PayID within one business day unless we agree another time period with you.
67.17. We may, if we have reasonable grounds for doing so, lock or close a PayID created and linked to your account at any time without prior notice to you. Without limitation, this includes where we suspect you created the PayID or are using the PayID in connection with fraudulent or illegal activity.
67.18. If your PayID is locked, you can request that it be unlocked by contacting us. If a PayID is closed it must be re-created before it can be used again.
67.19. If a PayID cannot be created for your account because it has already been created and linked to another account by someone else we can lodge a dispute. However, there is no guarantee that the dispute will be resolved in your favour or result in you being able to create the PayID for your account. We will promptly notify you of the outcome of the dispute.

We may debit any such loss, damage or cost to any account you hold with us.
Sending to Up PayIDs
67.22. When receiving a payment from another Up customer, we will reveal their Up-generated PayID to you. This will allow you to make a payment back to that PayID. This feature is only available between Up customers and does not apply to accounts from other institutions. Payments sent using this PayID are covered by the same terms as any other PayID payment.
Section J: Fees & Charges
There are three types of fees and charges which can apply to your account:
- Transaction fees
- Other fees and charges
- Government charges
This is an important section. It provides you with information about the fees and charges applicable to your accounts.
Fees and charges and Government charges may apply to your account and your use of payment facilities. You authorise us to debit these fees and charges and Government charges to your account. Current fees and charges are set out in this document.
We may change the fees and charges from time to time including introducing new fees and charges and Government charges. However, we will not introduce entry fees, exit fees or charges for the management of funds, excluding charges for the maintenance of the account.

If the law regulates such a change we will only make the change to the extent permitted by, and subject to, the requirements of that law.
We may at our sole discretion waive any or all fees and charges from time to time, substitute one fee or charge for an alternative fee or charge, or impose a lower fee or charge.

Tips on minimising your transaction fees
There are several ways in which you can minimise your transaction fees. They include:
- By making withdrawal and deposit transactions that are free of transaction fees.
- If using an ATM which charges you a fee, withdrawing more cash less often may reduce the number of transactions you make.
As these tips have been prepared without taking into account your objectives, financial situation or needs, before acting on these tips, you should consider how appropriate they are having regard to your objectives, financial situation and needs.
