Thank you for contacting Westpac Securities
Westpac Securities requires all customers to be principally residents of Australia. This is because we are mindful of potentially breaching foreign licensing and securities laws when offering securities to overseas residents.
This is important for the Westpac Group, particularly when it is operating in many foreign jurisdictions.
Consequently, Westpac Securities will only establish/maintain an account for an Australian resident who resides overseas, where an Australian residential address and details of an Australian bank account are provided. Hence all Westpac Securities customers are subject to the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
You may nominate an overseas postal address; however you must maintain an Australian residential address.
Should you have any further queries regarding this or any other issue, please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com
or simply reply to this email. Alternatively, you may contact us on 13 13 31 (7am to 7pm EST Monday to Friday). Our representatives will be happy to assist you.
