Our financial advice provider statement has some important information you should know about ANZ and our financial advice services. Please take the time to read it.

Interest for the ANZ Solicitors Trust account is calculated daily and paid on the last business day of each month. Interest for non-business days is calculated based on the balance as at the previous business day. All interest accrued is rounded to the nearest cent before payment. If interest accrued in a month is less than $0.005 (half a cent), it will be rounded to $0 and means you will receive no interest for that month.
