Warning - Scam Phone Calls

We wish to advise members that we are aware of a current phone scam targeting customers. The caller claims to be from Beyond Bank and states that  they need to repay owed fees back to the customer or are calling in relation to a class action for overcharging of fees.
These calls are designed to trick you into divulging further information or gain access to your Visa card number.

If you have received one of these calls and have given out your Visa card number, please call us immediately on 13 25 85 to have your card cancelled.

Please note we will never contact you requesting your card number, password or security information. If you ever receive an unsolicited phone call claiming to be from us, or from another Financial Institution, requesting that you provide personal information, it may be a scam so check with us before you respond.

Internet Explorer 8 no longer supported

As you may know, Microsoft recently made a decision to discontinue its support of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8). Unfortunately with this discontinuation of support from Microsoft means there will be no future security updates for it.

This leaves users exposed to potential security risks such as malware and viruses. Beyond Bank Australia would like to advise that as a result we will no longer support Internet Explorer version 8 or earlier versions as a browser.

Any future online developments by Beyond Bank Australia will support Internet Explorer 9 or later.

While you will still be able to access our website and Internet Banking using IE8 for an indefinite period of time, it may not function as expected. Internet Banking will continue to be available to IE8 users, however as it is no longer supported we may not be able to assist customers if any issues occur. You may also be liable for fraud losses on your account caused by the exploitation of any security flaws within IE8.

We recommend customers always update their browsers to the latest available version to ensure the latest security features and patches are available. You can download the latest version of Internet Explorer from Microsoft here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/internet-explorer/download-ie

If you have any queries regarding this change, please call us on 13 25 85.

Our 2014 Annual Report is now available to view here.

Our assets under management have grown to $4.12bn and we have recorded record levels for new lending – up 10.6% across the Beyond Bank Australia Group.

The completion of our transformation to Beyond Bank Australia was a significant milestone for our organisation during the year, and while the past twelve months has been challenging, our focus remained firmly on finding the best solutions and services for those who trust us with their finances – our customers.

  • Capital adequacy increased to 16.7 per cent; and
  • Customer satisfaction reached 95.9 per cent.

Strategic business improvements delivered in 2013/14 include:

  • Switching from credit union to mutual bank status and renaming the organisation to Beyond Bank Australia;
  • Securing an investment grade credit rating from independent ratings agency Standard and Poor’s;
  • Completing a merger with regional South Australian credit union Alliance One to expand the South Australian branch network and add 13,000 customers and $228 million to the balance sheet;
  • Launching a new mobile-optimised website with the customer experience at the forefront of design, that sets the foundations for future enhancements on our website; and
  • Introducing a brand new, state of the art digital-focused design at branches in West Lakes, SA, and Singleton, NSW, to improve service delivery.

We are proud of our achievements over the past year and thank our customers for their continued support.

We also thank our staff for their hard work throughout the year helping to build a solid 100% customer owned bank that offers a real alternative to the major banks.
 

Internet Banking important information - Internet Explorer 6 no longer supported

In response to recent security advisories we have made some enhancements to our Internet Banking service to improve security.

Internet Explorer 6 does not have sufficient security features and is no longer supported by Microsoft, therefore security patches are no longer available for this version. Customers using this version will not be able to login to Internet Banking from Friday 17th October. In order for Internet Explorer 6 customers to continue using our Internet Banking Service an update is required.

As always, to maintain your security we recommend customers always update their browsers to the latest available version to ensure the latest security features and patches are available. You can download the latest version of Internet Explorer from Microsoft here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/internet-explorer/download-ie

These changes have been made to ensure the security of Internet Banking, and do not affect other browsers. We apologise for any inconvenience.
