    Westpac refunds $11m to mortgage customers

    Westpac will pay about $11 million in compensation to interest-only home loan customers who were not switched to principal repayments when they should have been. The refunds will go to 9,400 customers who held owner-occupier interest-only variable home loans, most of which had interest-only periods that expired between 2009 and 2016. A processing error led to these customers continuing to make interest-only repayments after the interest-only period ended, rather than being switched to principal and interest repayments.

    Westpac to 'agitate' for bank levy removal

    Westpac says it will keep fighting to remove the federal government bank levy.
