Tax Free Investment

With a Tax-Free Investment account you can save money and never have to worry about your returns being taxed. Our Tax-Free Investment product promises market-leading returns with a great interest rate which is of course, non-taxable!

Features of a Tax Free Investment Account:

Minimum opening amount

A minimum opening deposit of R500.00 is required to kick start your Tax-Free savings journey. You can build on your initial deposit by making as many additional contributions as you like.

Maximum investment

The maximum investment is
R30 000.00 per annum and a lifetime maximum of
R500 000.00


With African Bank’s Tax-Free Investment account, we don’t determine the term, you do! You can continue building your tax-free savings for as long as you like.

Variable interest

Your interest rate will only change in line with positive market conditions. We guarantee that your interest rate will never fall below your starting point and that you will benefit from any rate increase. On the 12-month anniversary of your account, the current interest rate will apply.

Number of Tax Free Investment Accounts

Only one tax-free investment account per year can be opened.


You have the option to access your funds (partially or in full) on the 12-month anniversary month i.e. the month you opened your account.

It is recommended that you consult the services of a licensed financial planner or tax consultant in order to understand the tax implications on your investment.
