What is the interest rate?

Tier

Annual Interest gross p.a.*

Monthly Interest gross p.a.*

AER*

£1,000+ 0.90% 0.90% 1.00%

*Gross p.a. is the rate of interest paid without the deduction of tax per annum. 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 maturity. Monthly interest is paid on the last working day of each month. The final interest payment will be made on the maturity date.

Can Kent Reliance change the interest rate?

The interest rate on this account is fixed and cannot be changed during the account term. Up to date information on our interest rates can be found on our interest rates page, in branch or by calling our head office.

Can I withdraw money?

Transfers out, withdrawals and closures are permitted subject to 180 days’ loss of interest on the amount withdrawn. If you transfer out, withdraw or close the account in the first 180 days, you may get back less than you originally invested.

Any funds withdrawn from the account cannot be subsequently replaced in the same tax year.

For postal accounts, send us a signed withdrawal request to Head Office. Alternatively, if you have registered to operate your account online, simply log in and request your withdrawal to your nominated account.

If you hold a branch account, take your passbook and a form of ID to your local branch and a member of our team will action your request.

There are different payment cut-off times depending on the method of withdrawal you require. For further details please visit our withdrawals page or call our Head Office.

We will write to you 14 days prior to the maturity of your ISA notifying you of your options available at the end of the term. If we do not receive your maturity instructions, your funds will be automatically transferred to another product from our current range of available products, which has a term that is closest in length to the product that is maturing and similar terms and conditions.

Your nominated account must be a UK Bank/Building Society account held in your name.

Additional information

You may split your current tax year ISA allowance between multiple Kent Reliance ISA products.

If you choose to open multiple Kent Reliance products in the same tax year, these will be treated as a single ISA under HMRC regulations. HMRC prohibits opening multiple ISAs with multiple ISA providers in the same tax year. Therefore, if you want to transfer funds from one ISA provider to another, you must transfer your full ISA subscription for the current tax year.
