  • Fees data are collected from 15 banks operating in Australia, covering 90 per cent of total banking sector assets. Each bank provides data on income received over the financial year that is used as the basis for their public annual accounts and is subject to revision at the individual bank's discretion. All fees are net of rebates and other concessions granted.
  • Deposit account fees comprise mainly account-servicing and transaction fees, but also fees for overdrawing the account.
  • Loans are either direct loans or accounts that have a facility to become overdrawn without penalty (particularly in the case of business loans). Loan account fees comprise mainly establishment and loan servicing fees.
  • ‘Credit card’ fees comprise mainly annual fees, but also include late payment, over-limit, cash advance and foreign-currency conversion fees.
