Mortgage Offset Accounts Are Better Than Savings Accounts

Choosing Bank Savings Account

Remember that you must pay tax on any interest earned from a bank savings account in Australia, so if you have a home loan mortgage it is generally better to have the money in a 100% offset account. This way the reduction of the interest paid on the home loan is equivalent to earning interest at the home loan rate without having to pay any tax on it.
