Offset Account

An offset account is a bank account that offsets the amount of principal on which you ware required to pay interest. For example, if you have a $100,000 balance outstanding on your loan, you would normally pay interest on the full $100,000. If you have a $100,000 balance outstanding on your loan and an offset account with $30,000 in it, the $30,000 offsets the $100,000 loan and you only pay interest on $70,000
