What is the interest rate?

Rates effective 1 November 2016:

Annual Interest gross p.a.*

0.90% (£1+)

Monthly Interest gross p.a.*

0.90% (£1+)

AER*

0.90% (£1+)

*Gross p.a. is the rate of interest paid without the deduction of tax per annum. Please note that the automatic deduction of tax on savings interest ceased with effect from 6 April 2016. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. As every advertisement for a savings product will contain an AER you will be able to compare more easily what return you can expect from your savings over time.

Interest is calculated daily and can be credited to the account or transferred to your elected account.

Annual interest is paid on 5 April each year. Monthly interest is paid on the last working day of each month.

If your account balance is over £100, when we make a rate reduction we will personally notify you of the change at least 14 days in advance of the change taking effect.
