What this means for you

The rate increase will be effective from 12 August 2022. You'll see your new rate in your home loan account details in ANZ Internet Banking from this date. 

How this impacts your variable home loan repayments

When there's an increase in the index interest rate, the minimum repayment amount you need to pay will increase. We'll let you know if there's a change to your minimum repayments. 

What you need to do

  • If you're making interest only repayments, your interest amount charged each month will automatically reflect the new interest rate applied to your loan. You won't need to do anything.
  • If you're making principal and interest repayments, you may need to adjust your repayment amount depending on whether your repayments are set up as bank managed or customer managed payments.
Repayment types
Bank managed payments Customer managed payments

If your repayments are bank managed, ANZ will automatically increase the minimum repayment amount you’re required to pay. We'll let you know there's been a change to your repayment amount.

If your repayments are customer managed, you’ll need to adjust your repayment amount manually to meet the new minimum required repayment. 

Check your interest rate

Here's how to check your home loan interest rate in ANZ Internet Banking.

  • Log in to ANZ Internet Banking
  • Select your home loan account
  • Select the Details tab
  • Expand the Interest and charges section by clicking on the arrow to the right

Tools and tips to stay on top of your loan

Manage your repayments

Small changes to your repayments can make a big difference to the amount of interest you pay over the life of your loan.  For instance, if you make fortnightly repayments instead of monthly repayments, you'll be reducing your total interest charges.

Manage repayments

Offset your interest

If you have an eligible loan such as an ANZ Standard Variable loan or a one year ANZ Fixed loan, you could consider linking an offset account to it (a fee of $10 per month applies). The more money you have in your linked offset account, the less interest you'll need to pay on your home loan.

ANZ One offset

Split your loan

If you currently have a variable rate home loan and you're looking for more repayment certainty, you could consider splitting your loan into part variable, part fixed rate and get the best of both worlds. Learn more about splitting your loan.

Redraw from extra repayments

If you're ahead on your home loan repayments you may be able to access funds from the extra repayments made, or take a break from future scheduled repayments with ANZ Redraw.disclaimer

Your questions answered

If you have an existing home loan with ANZ and there are changes to your repayments, we’ll notify you of these changes in the usual way, based on how you’ve chosen to hear from us. Depending on your type of loan, you might also be notified of changes in an account statement or letter.

ANZ may advertise changes to its rates in a national newspaper. You can also check our current interest rates any time.

   

We regularly review interest rates to ensure they reflect current market conditions.  Our review includes factors such as:

  • The cost of wholesale funding
  • Our competitive positioning
  • The impact of economic conditions on our customers
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Overall business performance
  

If you wish to change your loan repayments yourself, you can do so online through ANZ internet banking or by contacting ANZ.

 

Phone or internet banking

Another financial institution or salary deduction

If you make your payments via a Direct Loan Payment from an ANZ account, adjustments can be made via Internet Banking or by calling 13 25 99 between 8.00am and 8.00pm (AEST), Monday to Friday.

If you make your payments in person, you can visit the nearest ANZ branch. Please be sure to check the opening hours prior to your visit.

If you make your payments via a transfer from an account held at another financial institution, or by salary deduction through an employer, you will need to provide instructions to your financial institution or your employer to change repayments to reflect the new repayment amount.

 

Please contact us so we can review your situation and explore the available options. More information can be found at our dedicated Hardship online site or through our COVID-19 Hub on anz.com.

  

Customers on a hardship arrangement will have their variable index rate increased by the same amount as other customers on applicable variable rate products. If you have concerns, please contact us.

If you would like more information, visit any ANZ Branch, call us on 13 13 14 or refer to our media centre page or interest rates page, which will be updated on 12 August 2022 to reflect these changes.

The payment type indicates whether the loan payment method is managed by ANZ or by you.

  • If the field displays "Bank Managed Payment (Direct Loan Payment)" this means that you have chosen this payment method as your only directly credited method of payment for this loan. Bank Managed Payments are managed by ANZ so they will be automatically increased if your minimum amount is increased (e.g. due to an increase in interest rates).
  • If this field displays "Customer Managed Payment", then the payment is not managed by ANZ and you will need to make other payment arrangements to meet your minimum repayment requirements.

All rates in this notice are current as at 12 August 2022.  ANZ regularly reviews its interest rates and may change them from time to time.  For details of current rates, please refer to ANZ interest rates.

Terms and conditions, fees and charges, and eligibility criteria (e.g. ANZ credit approval criteria) apply to ANZ loans.

If customers have questions about interest rates and their repayments, they should visit an ANZ branch, visit anz.com or contact ANZ on 13 13 14.
