Additional Relevant Information for the Online Fixed Term Deposit Account:
A fixed interest rate will apply from the time of account opening. The term of your account will always begin on a Business Day. If a lodgement is not made at the start of the term, this will result in interest applying to your account being less than the advertised amount.
You have ten days from the Investment Date (which you can ascertain by viewing your account online) to make a single lodgement to the account. Lodgements can be made in euro from any account with us or another financial institution from which you can make an electronic transfer. You can also lodge via draft or cheque in the Branch. If you do not make a lodgement to the account during this ten day period, the account will be closed
Additional lodgements cannot be made during the term of the account. However, if you decide to reinvest, we will allow you to make an additional lodgement to the account during the ten days prior to maturity
Any incoming payments received that would breach the minimum or maximum permitted balance will be returned to the originating Bank, which may take up to five business days.
No withdrawals are permitted during the term. It is therefore important that you consider your short term needs and ensure that you have sufficient funds in short term accessible deposits
If you decide to withdraw your funds at maturity, you must select a payment account held with us in your name (sole or joint) which you are able to operate online with our AIB Internet Banking service for your funds to be credited to
Withdrawals are subject to AIB Phone & Internet Banking transaction limits.
During the term of the account, you can log into AIB Internet Banking and select what you would like to do with your funds at maturity
You can choose to reinvest, withdraw some of your funds and reinvest the balance, or close the account. If you choose reinvest, your funds will be reinvested at the prevailing rate. In the absence of such instructions, your funds will automatically be reinvested for the same or a lesser term (if the original term is no longer available) at the prevailing rate.

Help and Guidance
Tax on Interest earned on Deposit Accounts
- We will deduct Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT) at the prevailing rate from all interest earned, unless you are entitled to exemption from DIRT, and we will pay this directly to the Revenue Commissioners
- To the extent that DIRT has been deducted there is no further liability to Irish income tax, but you may be subject to PRSI. Deposit Interest is not liable to the Universal Social Charge
- The Bank will deduct DIRT from the accounts of customers unless a fully completed non-resident declaration form is held by the Bank and a minimum balance of €12,500 is maintained at all times in each account maintained by the customer. Where these conditions are maintained, we will apply this DIRT exemption to all accounts you hold with us
- If you or your spouse are aged 65 or over in the current tax year, or permanently incapacitated, and you are exempt from income tax, you may apply to have all interest on the account paid without deduction of DIRT. Each personal account you hold with us requires a separate application
- Details of interest paid may be reported to the Revenue Commissioners, in accordance with the requirements of S.891B of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997.
Where interest is paid to an individual resident in an EU Member state (other than Republic of Ireland) or certain department territories, that interest will be reported to the Revenue Commissioners in accordance with the European Union Council Directive 2003/48/EC (EU Savings Directive).
