How it works
You can withdraw funds from your account, but these funds may not be replaced. Any direct transfers between financial institutions or individuals (or estates) are not allowed until further notice. Funds withdrawn from a Tax-Free Savings Account and transferred into another Tax-Free Savings Account will be deemed as a contribution.
A qualifying RMB Private Bank transactional account is needed to open the RMB Private Bank Tax-Free Savings Account.
