Get a tax-free investment account with Nedbank; you can invest your lump sum capital which guarantees returns with the Nedbank Tax-Free Fixed Deposit Account. Invest the money that you won’t need for a fixed period, and enjoy your tax-free proceeds.
The account allows a minimum investment amount of just R1 000.00 for a period of 12 months. The interest rates are fixed and market-related. Your interests can be paid on a monthly basis, if not quarterly, half-yearly or on maturity date as the investment period takes only a year.
During the investment period, there are no additional deposits that will be allowed, ensure you deposit the lump sum amount that you want to invest.
There are no monthly fees and commissions, and it is when the funds have been received by Nedbank when interest rates are offered.
Since the legislation limits annual contributions to R33 000.00, this means for this Nedbank account, you can only invest up to that amount for 12 months. The interest rate earned from the annual contribution will be tax-free. In a lifetime per individual, you can contribute up to R500 000.00. This legislation applies in every financial institution and service provider – there’s no dodging it.
