Features and benefits
Security of a fixed rate of interest
At certain stages in the growth of your business you may find that you have money to add to your savings. If you have a lump sum to save and you know that you can put it away for a fixed term, then you can benefit from the security of a fixed rate of interest.
You have to be prepared to put your money away for a term. If your business needs more frequent access to money, this account may not be the most suitable for you.
When you open an AIB Business Fixed Term Deposit Account, we will apply our prevailing rate of fixed interest to the account for the term. We pay the interest into the account at the end of the term. Where the Account has a term over one year, interest is also paid annually on the anniversary date.
Interest is subject to Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT) at the prevailing rate where applicable. (For more detailed information, visit www.revenue.ie)
At maturity (when the term ends), you can choose to reinvest, withdraw some of your money and reinvest the balance or withdraw all of your money and close your account.
You can let us know what you’d like to do with your money when you open an account or at any time during the term up to the business day before maturity at any AIB Branch. If you are a sole trader you can also do this online.
Please be aware that if you don't let us know what to do with your money when the term ends, your money will be automatically reinvested in your account which may be the same investment term or shorter investment term at the prevailing fixed rate on the day the term ends.
Lodgement options at reinvestment
If you choose to reinvest, you can add a minimum amount to your savings within five days of the term ending, subject to minimum lodgement requirements.
