Product Overview

Long term tax advantaged Jamaican dollar savings account which pays tax free interest on lump sums held for a minimum of 5 years. Account holders may withdraw up to 75% of the annual interest earned on a quarterly basis.

Should all or part of the principal be withdrawn, the tax free benefit will cease to exist and a penalty charged.

Each lump sum deposit in this account must remain for a period of 5 years in order to attract the tax advantage. As such, each deposit is treated as a separate time account with its own maturity.
