Note that all dividends earned are subject to DIRT. The dividend is posted net to the account every year, which means you will have no further tax liability on this income and there are no Revenue reporting requirements or member declarations attached to this account. This can represent a saving to some members who would normally be liable for tax at the highest marginal rate.

Deposit Guarantee Scheme

All of the savings of our members are guaranteed up to a maximum of €100,000 under the Government Deposit Guarantee Scheme. Information on the scheme is available at

CuCash and Xmas Savings Accounts

Please note that members must leave at least €63.50 in shares to be eligible for these accounts. Up to date ID and PPSN, as well as Proof of Address is also required to open these accounts.
