Fees for businesses

We're committed to offering financial services tailored to your needs at a fair price. Here's a breakdown of our fees for business account transactions and services.

Important

Changes will be made to certain fees on July 1, 2024.

When do you pay per-transaction fees?

With our transaction plans you get a specific number of transactions at a set price.

Our per-transaction fees apply when:

  • Your account doesn't have a transaction plan
  • You exceed the number of transactions included in your plan
  • You use services that aren't included in your plan

A $7 monthly management fee applies to your Build-Up Savings Account or Business Chequing Account if you don't have a transaction plan.

If you have a US Dollar Build-Up Savings Account, the fees are the same as for the chequing account but in US dollars.
